Seeking solutions to water shortages

28 Feb 2017

Seeking solutions to water shortages Image

Was it an arts event? A conference? A hackathon or maybe a think tank?

The “Water Futures” event held at the Docklands Community Hub on February 24 was all of these things – and more.

Held as part of the Asia-Pacific Triennial of Performing Arts (Asia: TOPA), the workshop brought a wide diversity of minds to bear on the very important issue of sustaining the global supply of fresh water.

Melbourne Arts House artistic director Angharad Wynne-Jones said it was difficult to recall who actually had the initial idea for the day. This is apt, as the ideas that came out of the event were a collaboration.

Scientists, policy makers, politicians, chief executive officers, futurists, educators and indigenous people worked together to tackle the issue of water scarcity – an issue that now affects 40 per cent of the world’s population.
