Loren Kronemyer & Mike Bianco

Brackish Rising

Interdisciplinary arts practitioners collaborate to explore the issue of salinity.


Tickets Free Event


Follow your tap water all the way back to the source.

In Brackish Rising, salinity renegades, citizen scientists and artists Loren Kronemyer and Mike Bianco playfully explore water, drought and desalination around Kwinana, home of the Perth Seawater Desalination Plant.

Order a flight of water tastings in the Brackish Rising Mobile Research Lab, hone your survival skills with a Water Still Workshop and learn to cook with saline plants in a beachside cooking class. These are just some of the interactive events that will explore the past, present and future of water sovereignty in Southwest Australia.

Keep an eye out for the program of free public events.

Brackish Rising is commissioned by International Art Space as part of the Know Thy Neighbour program, and presented for the 2017 Perth International Arts Festival in partnership with the City of Kwinana.
