Walk by the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj museum and you will see an 8-ft-tall tap hovering over a giant bucket till January 23. It’s an art work by Brinda Miller, meant to prod Mumbaiites into thinking closely about how they view, and use, water.

For those who’d like to translate their thoughts into words, and action, the museum is also hosting a summit organised by BASF India, featuring talks, film screenings and panel discussions.

“For me, visually, water is one of the most beautiful elements of nature. As an artist, I look at it as a natural art installation,” says Miller, who will be on the panel with retired deputy municipal commissioner Pramod Charankar, discussing water-related behavioural and policy reforms required in the city.

This will be following be a screening of documentaries such as H2OMX, which focuses on the water shortage in Mexico City, and Water Business is Good Business, an Indian film that explores the politics and economics of water supply in Mumbai, Delhi, Indore and Chennai.
