Friday 7 April – Saturday 8 April 2017
Perth International Arts Festival brings the Museum of Water mobile exhibition to Fremantle Arts Centre for Revealed 2017 to collect your water and stories.
Museum of Water is a collection of publicly donated water that tells stories of the place and people it travels to. 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. They tell 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 on the leafy front garden at FAC and bring some water that means something to you.
