Mar 19th - 25th

Social Arts Festival in Los Angeles

with artists from Hamburg, Berlin, Los Angeles and Kampala.

March 2018: This Festival is more than a week full of art and music. In cooperation with Viva con Agua and IHM (Hamburg Music Business Association), we are proud to present the WATERWEEK in Los Angeles. At this Social Arts Festival, artists, musicians and activists from Hamburg, Berlin, L.A. and Kampala collaborate to explore new common paths and to stand up for the human right to clean drinking water and sanitation.

A diversified mix of artists coming together, embedded in an urban space full of changes and peculiarities, which they will shape during WATERWEEK and beyond, makes this festival unique. More than 100 artists meet in L.A. to rock the stages, beautify the city even more with great street art, fine arts and photography, and show, what artistic collaboration can achieve.

There will be an exhibition of the storyboards of the Oscar-nominated movie Watu Wote by Katja Benrath, Live-Electro-Performance by Allergy Boy with visuals by Kymat (Hamburg), international street art artists like Björn Holzweg with his woodland animals (Hamburg), great concerts by musicians from Germany and Los Angeles such as Swearing at Motorists (Hamburg), Joy Denalane (Berlin) and Aloe Blacc (L.A.), varied art exhibitions, a charity soccer game and many more.

WATERWEEK will take place at various venues in Los Angeles. Entrance free - donations appreciated. All proceeds of the social art music and culture festival WATERWEEK are a direct support for the water and sanitation projects of Viva con Agua´s work in Uganda.
