DARE Watercolour project

DARE is working with artist Hugo Dalton to create a series of mini exhibitions documenting our work with satellite-derived flood observations.  Each exhibition will feature works made during a residency at Reading and with views of the river Thames made on location. The project is in collaboration with the Royal Collection Trust at Windsor.

Opening in January 2022, a series of framed watercolours will be exhibited in care homes in West London.  The aim is to give these local communities an understanding of flooding research on the river Thames.

A series of videos describes the flood research science:
