Presenting a series of concerts, parties and events, the Hamburg-based water non-profit Viva con Agua, and artists from Hamburg, Berlin, Los Angeles, and Kampala (Uganda) will spotlight trans-border cultural and artistic collaboration and free access to potable water worldwide.

From March 19-25, 2018, the WATER WEEK Social Arts Festival Los Angeles will be setting the stage for artists, performers and visionaries from Germany’s uber-creative cities, Hamburg and Berlin. The festival is a joint project of Hamburg’s music business association, Viva con Agua, and the “Übermut Project” [exuberance project], which represents Hamburg’s and Berlin’s vibrant creative scenes in cities around the world.

Over 100 artists will meet in LA to collaborate and rock the stages with a diverse program of art, music and sports at various venues throughout the city, while also highlighting and exploring solutions to present-day global challenges and to stand up for the human right to clean drinking water and sanitation.

The program ranges from water workouts at Venice Beach to a charity soccer match to performances by Swearing at Motorists, Low Bros, Kymat, Pascal Kerouche and others (all from Hamburg), Peach Kelli Pop and Allah-Las (both from Los Angeles), Fenster (Berlin) and Ugandan artists Papa Shabani and Hatimax, to international street art artists like Björn Holzweg with his woodland animals (Hamburg) Joy Denalane (Berlin) and Aloe Black (Los Angeles). Audiences and participants will be encouraged to explore new common paths and engage in activism.

One of the highlights of the WATER WEEK will be the Viva con Aqua night at The Virgil Club in Silverlake on March 24, featuring Los Angeles-based Aloe Blacc and DJ JEDI, and Max Herre, Joy Denalane and Samon Kawamura from Berlin.

WATER WEEK’s proceeds support water and sanitation projects of Viva con Agua´s work in Uganda.
