The Rights of the River Group


The All Rivers and Species Act is a collaboration between artists Jemma Woolmore, Cristina Napoleone, Ibelisse Guardia Ferragutti, Nayeli Vega, Jenny Handley, and Lily Mccraith. It is a research project focusing on the rights and voices of rivers worldwide. The artists respond to the recent granting of legal personhood rights to a river and a mountain in New Zealand and elsewhere. The project was born during FIBER Festival’s virtual Weaving With Worlds lab in the summer of 2021.
