‘Life, death and all the washing up in between.’


What water will you keep?

A vial of tears, melted ice from Antarctica and a plastic bottle of billabong water – every drop tells a story. Choose your water, find something to put it in and tell us why you brought it. PIAF Artist-in-Residence Amy Sharrocks invites you to consider your relationship with the world’s most indispensable liquid as we build the WA edition of the award-winning Museum of Water.

Surfing, swimming, desalination, irrigation and thirst – the pleasures and politics of water affect us all.

Set to open in PIAF 2018 before becoming part of the Western Australian Museum’s permanent collection, Museum of Water is a radically different kind of museum.


If you could keep one water – what would you keep?

Choose your water
Find something to put it in
Tell us why you brought it
We will keep it for you
