Getting into Hot Water is an inquiry into water and climate change locally as part of Dudley People’s School for Climate Justice. It explores our relationship with water and the natural world around us, bring our attention to water, questioning the habitual ways by which we know water, stimulating dialogue regarding human water relations and in the process engendering a process of curiosity, wonder and care. Getting into Hot Water is led by local artists Helen Garbett and Bill Laybourne, who have been collaborating with Dudley CVS for a number of years through our CoLab Dudley work on collective imagination, long term thinking and cultural strategy.

In May Helen and Bill invite you to the activities below, and a film screening of RIVER. In June they begin a series of short courses outdoors.
