Beauty of Water

generating collaborative art experiences in communities around the world

About Beauty of Water

Beauty of Water was founded in California in 2006 by Liza Behrendt. Our first projects took place in Kerala, India, in partnership with Latha Kurien Rajeev, V.Sasikumar, and many other amazing people. We are now working in the the Seattle area, Washington State, USA.

Our mission is to expand appreciation for water through artistic collaborations, stimulating positive shifts in the human relationship with water and inspiring greater caregiving for water everywhere. We share with infinite others the vision of restoration and harmony on our gorgeous planet. And we focus on the world we want to live in.

Beauty of Water is gradually working with communities around the world. We offer opportunities for leadership, creativity, learning, and service, tapping into a greater purpose and interconnectivity. We partner with professional and amateur artists, schools, colleges, organizations, clubs, and individuals, co-creating collaborations that are just right in each context. Sound good? Let's start a project!
