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.
Melbourne Artists Debbie Symons and Jasmine Targett were awarded the first Artist in Residency at Creative Spaces: Carlton Connect Studio for their new body of work –The Catchments Project.
During their residency Symons and Targett created 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 was part of the Art+Climate=Change Festival: April – May 2015.
