Cultures in Conversation | The Silencing of Water at Dubai Expo 2022

Dr Vikrom Mathur presented Journey of a River at the recent Dubai Expo 2022 as part of the session Cultures in Conversation: The Silencing of Water.

“Cultural connections and knowledge were forged through maritime trade over centuries, shaping our cultural identities and belief systems. Water has symbolised freedom and exploration through tales of adventure, or it has represented the wrath of nature through shifting rivers, drowning bodies and historic floods. As much of the planet faces water scarcity and damage to marine ecosystems, what can we learn from the respect that our ancestors had for the elixir of life? How does the past connect with the water crises and water conflicts we face today?”
