Biophilium Submerge Residency: Water Ecology June 2022

Thrilled to learn today that Steam Creatives was accepted into Canada’s Biophilium Residency for the Submerge Program (formerly known as Ayatana).

Submerge
June 6 – 17, 2022

Submerge is a #research #residency for writers and conceptual artists to study fresh and salt water ecology and human relationships with water. It will take place over 2 weeks online in the summer of 2022. The residency includes daily video chats with a variety of experts like river keepers, biologists and engineers. Residents will gain a rudimentary understanding of natural water systems, urban water treatment and wetland wildlife. Ayatana residencies focus on research by visual and conceptual artists. Submerge is designed to offer a nourishing context for thinkers to explore concepts for creative projects. This residency will host seven selected international artists.
