“Water Futures” conference
Arts House, Melbourne, Australia
Members of The Pump first met as delegates to this conference, and came together as a working group for three days, to create a proposal for action on Water Futures. Our proposal was entitled “Skinship”, and was to be an ongoing series of projects and encounters that would bring people into contact with bodies of water - both in the literal sense (rivers, creeks), and in the sense of human bodies, which are made up primarily of water.
The group gathered at Bundanon, on the banks of Bangalee (“Shoalhaven River”), to instigate new projects and strategies.
