WATERWHEEL – first lab/residency about to begin!

Since the announcement of the project, responses show a real interest for the topic, the metaphor & the platform.  Exciting!  Propositions from curators, research, involvement of university students, info forwarded to scientists,etc.   We had a bit of delay in the platform development, as I came back end of the year with swine flu, and Inkahoots studio was out of service for 2 weeks because of the floods. So we will work with a very basic version of the platform, which is maybe more open at this stage for your feedback & advice on its functionalities.

We started a conversation between lab & online participants (below full list of participants), as well as interested people, on a:  Facebook group and a Blog.

The FOUNTAIN first public events (with audience online & on site in Brisbane, at the Bell Tower, level 3, Judith Wright Centre) will happen on:
- March 3 & 4 @6-8pm (Qld time – find your time)
- March 5 @11.30am-1.30pm (Qld time – find your time) & 5-7pm (Qld time -  find your time) ! we will post links & more info closer to the dates !
