The Canadian Water Innovation Lab 2010

Last friday we took part in the Canadian Water Innovation Lab 2010 with a presentation on the role and place of art in the consideration of infrastructures in the city, focussing on water infrastructures and sustainability through our Watershed+ project.

The presentation was very well received and the following discussion session, where we were the "resource guests", was very interesting, with questions and issues raised by people from a whole range of backgrounds. A very good day, thanks for all the questions and the discussion and for inviting us.
