FLOW is an awakening to what was, what is, and what could be, marking the Rio Chiquito’s path (now Water Street), which was once a major water source for the city’s flora, fauna, and agriculture. FLOW is a procession of giant puppets, street theatre, music, poetry, dance and ceremony running from the source Spring at the northwest corner of Paseo de Peralta and Alameda, following the Rio Chiquito (now Water Street) to its confluence with the Santa Fe River near the Guadalupe Church. FLOW offers free public arts workshops May 27 and June 3 at Wise Fool NM, to engage, educate and inspire all community members about Santa Fe’s water and water history. At these workshops, after learning about the Rio Chiquito and the Santa Fe River, participants will create art, puppets, banners, and poetry about water and the Rio Chiquito. These artworks will come to life in the procession as community members wear, carry, speak and sing their relationship to the waters.

FLOW is organized by Jo Christian and Bobbe Besold, with many community partners (Axle is one of those).
