S+T+ARTS4WATER is a project of S+T+ARTS, an initiative of the European Commission to foster alliances between Science, Technology, and the Arts, in order to cultivate technological innovation centered on human needs and values. Bringing together Art, Technology and Science, the project S+T+ARTS4WATER aims to tackle one of the most pressing challenges of our times: water management.
For a year, Micheline Verhaeghe - R&D Manager at Pollet Water Group - has been working together with the international artist Haseeb Ahmed to develop an innovative vision around water pollution from pharmaceuticals, a local water issue in Belgium. This residency aimed at exploring pharmaceutical pollution ending up in our water supply chain, leaving their marks on our oceans, rivers and lakes and all its living organisms and the need to increase prevention initiatives.
The works resulted from this collaboration are presented at the 'Faces of Water' exhibition in Bozar (Brussels) running from 21 October to 4 December 2022.
