STRETCH Festival, Perth

Saturday 6 May – Sunday 7 May 2017

Museum of Water travels to Stretch Festival to collect your water and stories.

Museum of Water is a collection of publicly donated water that tells stories of the place and people of Western Australia. It is an exhibition of moments from everyday life – the ritual of our mornings, the first summer rain, the glass of water by our bed, a secret swimming spot. It is our collection of joyous adventures, family, desalination, irrigation and thirst.

Starting on a street corner in London Museum of Water has journeyed across the UK and Europe over the last four years. The WA edition will travel across the state for the next year collecting water along the way from WA people.

To donate or view the collection come visit us in Mandurah and bring some water that means something to you.
