This Instructional Resource is based on our current efforts as part of an interdisciplinary project where artists, community members, engineers, social activists, and educators are working together to make positive change in people’s lives. Water, as a subject, symbol, and life-sustaining substance, is the focus of our our work and the interdisciplinary curriculum it has inspired. We have found that interdisciplinary approaches in partnership with inspiration from real life social issues can provide central point of focus or a series of meaningul learning experiences that relate to current interests in global and green movements (Anderson, 2000; Simon, 2006), sustainability (Chilman, 2004), and contemporary social projects (Coutts & Rusling, 2002; Taylor, 2002)
