Grants and Contracts Details


This project focuses on efforts to remake the relationship between river and city in Sao Paulo, Brazil. In response to an ongoing water crisis characterized by both regularized flooding and water scarcity, actors both inside and outside of the state are currently attempting to create new ways of managing urban water. I focus on contemporary projects to reimagine the Tiete River, including artist engagements and creative projects focused on highlighting the cityfs often marginalized rivers as well as two state]led development projects designed to provide infrastructure against flooding and public space to urban residents. This project contributes to understanding the challenges of managing water in a metropolitan region of twenty million people and 39 municipalities.
