The following exhibitions and projects have no direct formal, or institutional, connection to the Immersion Emergencies Projects – as such we are in no way responsible for the content of the following links. These sources engage in diverse ways with the themes of water, culture, and the visual arts.  It is our hope that by drawing relations we will encourage a greater understanding of, and conversation on, these complex topics and their intricacies. This list is by no means exhaustive and we expect the list will grow during the course of our projects.
