Taking place in September of 2010, February of 2011 and August of 2011, the Flow Projects were unique events that brought together artists, activist organizations and concerned citizens. The Projects were an urgent response to the imminent threat of Hydraulic Fracturing in New York State, and a demonstration of support for clean water. By immersing themselves in days of activity that combined art, outdoor recreation and discussion, participants were able to explore immediate and ongoing issues, and celebrate pure water. 

The two summer events featured works presented on the shores, and sometimes within, the Delaware River, for participants to engage with as they flowed down the river in their canoes or on floats. The pieces were creative approaches to invocations, ceremonies, sing-a-longs and media installations presented by artists such as Matt Marble, Ryder Cooley & Chris Harvey, Tara Rodgers, Travis Johns, MV Carbon, Zach Layton, Carrie Dashow and more.

SnowFlow, presented in February of 2011, featured outdoor works such as snow sculptures by local artists and performances by Miguel Frasconi on glass & water instruments, and Pauline Oliveros on accordion.

The Flow Projects were presented by a collective of organizations, including Damascus Citizens for Sustainability,  Not An Alternative, Ear to the Earth, Mildred's Lane, and SkyDog Projects.
