2013 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Sistah Mafalda’s project highlights one of the greatest challenges that affect thousands of people today -- the lack of access to clean water.  She and the project’s participants created a multidisciplinary performance to tell the story of the water crisis in Africa through a blend of traditional style dance and new media technology.  She hopes that this project will raise consciousness and promote dialogue around the state of water conditions worldwide.
