What: Global Water Dances-Cincinnati at Paddlefest/Pedalfest 2013 is a multi-media event of unprecedented scope, using the power of the arts to engage members of our region on the critical topic of sustainable water purity, safety, and availability here and around the world.

Where: Serpentine Wall on the Ohio River (located at Yeatman’s Cove between the Purple People Bridge and Taylor-Southgate Bridge, at the foot of Broadway on Pete Rose Way).

When: 10 AM on June 22, 2013, to kick off the Paddlefest Finish Line Festival. Over 3,000 kayakers and canoers will be floating by, creating a moving backdrop honoring our beautiful Ohio River.

Why: To bring awareness to the critical issue of pure, clean, safe, available drinking water to ensure the sustainability of our planet Earth, her people, animals, plants, and ecosystems. Global Water Dances is a visionary global initiative in which groups across the world unite to raise awareness of water quality and availability issues through the power of the arts.

Who: Over 100 artists including dancers, choreographers, musicians, visual artists and key environmental groups in the Greater Cincinnati region under the artistic leadership of Fanchon Shur, Lead Choreographer, and Shari Lauter, Composer/Music Director. Official event sponsors include ArtsWave, Greater Cincinnati Dance Alliance, Growth in Motion, and ShariSilks with event support from Paddlefest/Pedalfest 2013.

How Much: Free to all. Donations day of event and advance sponsorships are welcome. All advance sponsors will be acknowledged verbally the day of the event and in print via programs, signs, and press releases.
