Every drop counts. The Catchments Project at Carlton Connect Initiative needs your samples of harvested water.

What we need: Melbournian’s are being asked to drop a 300ml (individuals) or a 1 Litre (businesses) sample of their collected grey/rain water to the Carlton Connect Studio.

What you get in return: Each sample will be presented in hand-crafted glass bottles, etched with the owners name and location of where the water was harvested. After the exhibition the artists will gift the individuals contribution within its hand-crafted glass bottle back to the participant. All contributors will be credited the exhibition catalogue and website.

About – The Catchments Project

Debbie Symons and Jasmine Targett have been awarded the first Artist in Residence at Creative Spaces: Carlton Connect Studio for their new body of work -The Catchments Project. The City of Melbourne’s Creative Spaces program has established a studio at the Carlton Connect Initiative’s (CCI), LAB-14, with the specific intention of positioning artists amongst researchers, academics and entrepreneurs addressing issues of sustainability and resilience.

During the residency Symons and Targett will create three new research based works that address the challenge and complexity of Climate Change Adaptation surrounding reduced rainfall and drought. Making Water Visible, The Water Harvest and Getting Busy, focus on innovative ways of visualising, contributing to and enhancing Melbourne’s waterways and catchments.

The Catchments Project is a part of the Art+Climate=Change Festival: April – May 2015.
