Taking part on the Upper Delaware River , which was recently declared the nation’s most endangered river, “Flow Slow” explores the near and long term threats posed by the disastrous “Hydro-Fracking” process carried out by the natural gas industry. The conference will literally take place on the river, floating in canoes, kayaks and other homemade rafts. Other events will take place off the river and will be open to the public.

The event will combine music, art and conversations to creatively produce a variety of works to raise awareness surrounding this critical issue. Artists were advised to engage a piece of technology, a piece of media, an art work, documentation of the trip, writing, music, or any creative response. Participants include: music by Bruce Tovsky, Suzanne Thorpe, Carrie Dashow; site specific installations by Heather Dewey Hagbourg; and water based artworks by Natalie Jerimijenko, Uke Jackson, Kevin Vertrees and moreTBA.
