Water Rising Conference – 17th May 2019

A GroundWork Gallery day-long conference

To coincide with the current exhibition: Water Rising, making art in calm and storm (open daily except Sundays and Mondays, 11-4 till June 1st)

This event will get you up to date on all kinds of topical and urgent water issues. Great for artists, architects, engineers, designers, landscape and water specialists, plus NGOs. It is so important that we share ideas across disciplines and consider the practical and legal issues as well as the cultural and emotional ones when we consider our futures with rising water. Speakers represent the exhibition and its stunning artists, but also some of the largest architectural and engineering practices in the world, a unique initiative to create a world network of water museums and – stop press – a lawyer specialising in civil society and water, who proposes some innovative ideas about the role of art as communities struggle to preserve their rights to water.

Community events for Water Rising are supported by Anglian Water’s Keep It Clear Campaign
