The Virtual Water Gallery

A SciArt Collaborative Pilot Project

Overview

The Virtual Water Gallery is a science and art pilot project being launched by the Global Water Futures program. This project aims to provide a safe, inclusive and collaborative space for fully open discussions between scientists, artists and the wider public, to explore past, present and future water-related (scientific) challenges. As part of this pilot project, we are hoping to connect 10 Canada-based artists with GWF teams of scientists, for them to co-explore specific water scientific challenges, identified beforehand by the artists. These collaborations will lead to the creation of art pieces by the artists (with a variety of art media), exhibited online on a virtual water gallery by the Spring 2021, for all to see and interact with. The hope is that these pieces open up discussions about pressing water related challenges to a wider audience via the gallery space.
