A striking international art exhibition featuring work from children across the world showing how they feel about water
Our Children On Water
International Art Exhibition
Our Children on Water is a thought-provoking and insightful art exhibition showing how the world's children feel about water.
Schoolchildren from Europe and Africa were asked to express their feelings when thinking about water. The results from the different continents are striking and fascinating.
This free exhibition forms part of a global celebration of the International Year of Chemistry, as the chemical sciences play a vital role providing safe, clean drinking water across the world.
