Resistance Transmission weaves together a series of deep listening experiences that explore our changing relationship to water, and waters changing relationship to us. Exploring indigenous and settler histories, contemporary migrations and our ongoing social and economic interactions with the water bodies that sustain life on this planet, Resistance Transmission asks you to engage and to listen deeply so we can better prepare for the challenges of our water futures together.
