The Watershed+ Lab is a concept that immerses artists within the Watershed+ program, with the intent to support critical thinking, shared knowledge and to bring contemporary artists’ practices into the work of the UEP Department. This issues-based Lab encourages artists to explore and experiment in response to the context of Calgary’s water management system and the city.
The Dynamic Environment Lab includes a funded program week, based in Calgary, providing artists the opportunity to research, learn and then to submit a concept proposal based on the experiences and interactions gained during the time spent in Calgary.
This Lab has grown from previous Watershed+ initiatives – UEP staff laboratories, artist residencies, permanent and temporary projects – aiming to renew and strengthen emotional connections between Calgarians and their watershed.
