The Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies is running a student competition for arts-based presentations of still images/works or performance/video pieces of 4 to 10 minutes on the topic of water (“the piece”).
In September 2013, the Peter Wall Institute will host a public panel discussion on the need for cross-disciplinary strategies to deal with the global, financial, ecological and societal issues relating to water. The panel will take place at UBC during a conference of University-Based Institutes for Advanced Study, bringing together more than 90 international scholars from around the world. To help showcase these issues, the Institute is awarding up to four student prizes for an arts-based piece on some aspect of water.
