Hydracity – toward Watery Commons (InspiralLondon project 2020-2022) is a fluid, open celebration of the shifting powers of water;  exploring together the metropolis’ consumption and management of the natural and artificial souces of water – a vital resource that simultaneously sustains and threaten London’s infrastructure. What is the future? How do we encourage other ways of seeing and experiencing the watery commons; uncover, discover and recover the spiritual well-being inherent in this watery realm while acknowledging the climate crisis; the role of the tidal barrier, other defences; the wetlands, the threat of inundation or in the annual flooding – healing potential. Finally, how water, fundamental to life, suggests other fluid states of being, other realms, circulations and possibilities.
