Disruptive Solidarity

It’s no use being aware that our heritage from Industrial Era is all wrong; or that this cultural, social and economic pattern might take us to a civilizatory collapse. It’s no use being aware that Contemporaneity opened excelent opportunities to rebuild this cosmovision, toward a more holistic, horizontal and solidary one. In other words, it will be only through organicity of relationships, feelings and attitudes that the colors of horizon ahead will be changed. Tropixel-Água is an open door for integrationist radical actions; transdisciplinary and umbilicaly connected to territories and its community bases; via algorithms and applied circuits towards sustainability; via rithms and harmony to cure our souls; via paints and colors over dancing bodies, to be Love.

Tropixel-Água production begins its path this way, with open arms and hearts to participation, collaboration and to the development of organic networks. An international event with scientific activities, with artistic and technologic occupation activities into urban spaces, is a huge challenge. Summing up, if you got here at this text, don’t stop: tell us ways you could collaborate with Tropixel-Água. How could you and your productive networks connect at this flow? Can we create together? Shall we overcome challenges and solve problems together?

Tropixel-Água Blog is a space for Researchers, Artists and Technicians that will participate of the event to express themselves. The production team will post teasers related to Water, and so we hope to unwind, and at the same time to tie up, ideas, feelings and knowledge. This space is an invitation for the Collaboration Culture, to build a Community of Purpose and Beauty. The texts don’t need to be scientific, thus the goal is to promote them and to include diverse publics.  As the title of this first post brings up, we want to learn with water: its cycles, its vital essentiality, its fertility, its strength, its beauty… Amongst stones in groundwater, falling down hills in waterfalls or evaporating in rainbows towards the sky.

First teaser:
