Ongoing Water Project Collaborator Devi Lockwood
Devi Lockwood is a poet / touring cyclist / storyteller traveling the world (mostly by bicycle) to record 1,001 audio stories on water & climate change. Since the 2014 People's Climate March in NYC she has collected over 750 stories in the USA, Fiji, Tuvalu, New Zealand, Australia, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Qatar, Morocco, the U.K., Canada, China, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. Devi is working to create a map on a website where you can click on a point and listen to a story someone has told her from that place, and will be launching a podcast (along with artistic / environmental education collaborations) in 2018. Her writing has been published in The New York Times, The Guardian, Slate, and elsewhere. She is a 2018 National Geographic Explorer for a project recording stories with ArtCirq, an indigenous Arctic circus in Igloolik, Nunavut, Canada.
