Project: Follow the water 2018 Albany, Western Australia


You are invited to the Follow the water performative walking project


Walk with me for an hour tracing the path of water through urban and peri-urban Albany as it threads its way over, under and through human infrastructure. Find out about where water travels and why it is important to know this.


When: At a time convenient to you between 1-5 December or 10-16 December
Where: At an Albany drain near you!
How long: About an hour
What to expect: walking at an easy pace along paths or bush tracks that follow the many drains and ditches around Albany — imagining the path of water, listening to the world around you, talking watery thoughts and exposing a cyanotype print at the end of the walk based on your experience. You are welcome to bring your camera
