The goal is to highlight the acequia network for the benefit of the local community and wider audience of visitors traversing the downtown. These installations will be featured at the Paseo 2019 festival, September 13th and 14th, with the opportunity for pre- and post-installation capacities. All installations will be considered as an implementation for permanent installations.

Paseo will work closely with a number of partners to implement the Water/Culture 2019 including the Town of Taos, the Acequia Madre de Rio Pueblo, The Taos Valley Acequia Association, The NM Acequia Association, The Arts and Cultural District, Taos Mainstreet, The Taos Gallery Association, Taos Art Council, and a number of educational institutions and local businesses.

Local acequia and cultural leaders have become increasingly aware of and engaged in the water issues facing Taos. There is tremendous opportunity to utilize arts and culture strategies to advance sustainable, integrated, and inclusive management of the community’s water resources. As creative thinkers and doers, artists can be powerful partners to water leaders. Together, they re-imagine traditional approaches to water planning and management and connect with communities in new ways.
