About Us

WetLab is part of the AND Festival 2021 programme.

This floating laboratory created by public works and Assembly uses the canal network as a site as well as a subject. WetLab is a space where creative minds including artists, architects, scientists, engineers and technologists invite the public to come and explore the ecology of the waterways and together envisage potential future uses for the canal in their local area.
WetLab is intended to create an opportunity for discussion and exploration, serving as a spark to imagine future uses of living on and around water. Working with the canals and waterways,

WetLab will host playful experiments, workshops and cross-disciplinary discussions.
The canal-based pavilion, designed by critical design practice public works, will tour sites across Greater Manchester and Lancashire after launching in Cheshire for AND Festival 2021, becoming a hub for innovative learning, discussion, and engagement on the waterways.

Details of the WetLab events programme will be announced in Mid-May.

WetLab by public works + Assembly is commissioned by Abandon Normal Devices and Super Slow Way. Produced by Abandon Normal Devices for AND Festival 2021. Delivered in partnership with Canal & River Trust and Wigan Council. Supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
