Perth International Arts Festival

Saturday 18 February – Sunday 5 March 2017

Museum of Water continues to make its way across the world, with the next stop in Western Australia. The Museum will launch in PIAF 2017, working towards a large-scale version opening in PIAF 2018 before becoming part of the Western Australian Museum’s permanent collection.

What water will you keep?

A vial of tears, melted ice from Antarctica and a plastic bottle of billabong water – every drop tells a story. Choose your water, find something to put it in and tell us why you brought it. PIAF Artist-in-Residence Amy Sharrocks invites you to consider your relationship with the world’s most indispensable liquid as she builds the WA edition of the award-winning Museum of Water.

Surfing, swimming, desalination, irrigation and thirst – the pleasures and politics of water affect us all.
