Museum of Water Ontario began as a collection of publicly donated water to explore our relationship with water through the gifts of contributors. In a new collaboration between creator Amy Sharrocks and a collective of Indigenous artists including Elwood Jimmy, Leslie McCue, and Sara Roque, this artwork evolves with the contexts of the land we are on and the water we live with.

The Museum is an invitation to enter into conversation and build our capacity for collective action in support of water, precious water knowledges, and water access. Responding to one of the most critical issues of our days, Museum of Water Ontario presents a multiverse that questions the nature of museumhood and cherishes the interconnections between human and non-human worlds.

Museum of Water has travelled across the UK, The Netherlands and Western Australia and now continues a collaboration with Ontario as a multi-year residency, which began in 2020 and launches an interactive virtual platform in October 2021.
