'Imagine Water, Catch the Drop' art project moves to GozoThe ‘Imagine Water, Catch the Drop’ art project, which was exhibited last May at St James Cavalier, Valletta as part of the Valletta 2018 activities, is now on its way to Gozo.

The project will be on display at the Cittadella Culture Centre, Victoria, from this Friday, the 3rd until Sunday, the 26th of August, entrance is free of charge.

The three-year art project was a result of collaboration between HSBC Malta and France-based l’association École d’art au village (Edaav).

The project was designed to engage artists, teachers, and students in a long-term and meaningful creative process while raising awareness of the importance of water to the Maltese islands.

A total of 150 students from 4 different schools in Gozo and Malta ranging from Grade 6 to Form 3, participated in the project.

To fit with the concept of water, the art project has been produced in watercolours. Visitors to the exhibition will be able to view; Imagine Water at Space 5 and Gozo Goes Art at Space 1 and 3.

The HSBC Water Programme – Catch the Drop was the largest ever national environmental and educational campaign of its kind in Malta and aimed to forge a blueprint for progress on sustainability of water as a resource.

It ran from 2013 to 2018 before making way for new HSBC Water Programme initiatives. To-date, HSBC has invested nearly €1 million on various water-related schemes in Malta.

Glenn Bugeja, Manager Corporate Sustainability, speaking about another successful year for the HSBC Water Programme said, “we are glad that we have had another successful year with a good number of projects aimed at helping underline the HSBC Water Programme commitment to help build greater awareness for water conservation with the Maltese student population.”

      While thanking the organizers for bringing close to home (Gozo) such an educational drive, each time WATER is mentioned I cannot but see in my mind’s eye the many occasions where for hours and even days water is wasted down the streets because of burst pipes.

      Whenever there is a discussion program on the media about water, many concerned listeners call and share this same disquiet that the Water Services Corporation is far from efficient in stopping this spillage. On the one hand everyone is asking us to conserve and not waste a drop and the people who should have the most concern ‘The Water Services Corporation’ let water run for days before they fix it. Is it a question of understaffed? I tend to differ. I think it is more a question of ‘We don’t care’.

      In a normal house the water is delivered to the door but in a block of flats, the main is installed inside up to the meters. How many times this main get faulty? My friend came to work late to-day because he was draining water from his garage for a flat main leaked and he called the Services 3 days ago and every single day.

      Most of us Citizens are very careful and concerned people but the bad example from the people who ought to be in the forefront in Campaigning for Water Conservation are lacking drastically!
