As part of the project series “City of Respect. We build on solidarity!” project series, the second action “Rainwater nourishes!” took place in Steyr on 27 April. It was carried out jointly by KunstRaum Goethestrasse xtd and participants from the Pyhrn-Eisenwurzen, Steyr and Kirchdorf regions.
Rainwater was collected for a month in two ways. On the one hand, all project participants collected rainwater individually – under the gutter outside in the garden, or standing in the rain. Secondly, yellow water collection containers were distributed along a heart-shaped route through Steyr.
The joint collection in the urban space of Steyr and the gathering of the rainwater brought by the project participants drew our attention and appreciation to water as a precious and essential food for life and nature, especially in the city of Steyr.
The guiding question of the action “What do we need every day and will be important in the future?” has shaped the discussion through action and texts and the city of respect has been complemented by water.
We would like to thank all those involved in the project!
The next action “Designing hearts – building arches” will take place on 27 May 27th 2022, from 9.00 a.m. – 1.00 p.m. Meeting place: Psychosocial meeting place (former Clubhouse) Steyr.
