This floating laboratory created by public works and Assembly uses the canal network as site as well as subject. A space where creative minds including artists, architects, scientists, engineers, technologists and cooks invite the public to come and explore the biological and social ecology of the waterways, and together envisage potential future uses for the canal in Wigan borough.

Over three days (6-8 August) artists from public works and Assembly will lead workshops with opportunities to observe demonstrations and take part in activities.

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 and Canal & RiverTrust.
