Watershed Art Prize

The Watershed Art Prize encourages awareness of water as a precious resource and encourages South Australian artists to explore water conservation and the role it plays in creating a more liveable environment. 

The City of Salisbury is continually striving to promote sustainable energy saving practices and is actively implementing Australia's first totally integrated water management plan to efficiently harvest and manage systems for rainwater, stormwater, ground water, recycled waste water and potable water.

The Art Prize is supported by major sponsor ICE WaRM (the International Centre of Excellence in Water Resources Management), which is an Australian Government initiative providing mentoring, education and training in water management in Australia and Internationally. The Centre provides a national focus and an international gateway to Australian expertise in water resources management education, training and research.
