Select a piece of paper, gather a pencil and write a small note to add to evolving artwork. Gifting Knowledge is a permanent feature of The Waterhouse at Barangaroo, inviting everyone of all ages to offer their contributions to a growing wall of life learnings. In the spirit of the gifting economy, we ask you to be generous with what you share and to consider the impact it may have on the world and others. 

The Waterhouse acknowledges the ‘teacher’ in all, manifesting in animals, plants, environments and humankind. It celebrates waters, trees, insects, and children as places and spaces that hold an abundance of knowledge to be collected and shared. Gifting Knowledge springs from this acknowledgement, in the spirit of equity it values and respects all contributions equally and thanks those who choose to spend time and contribute to the evolution of its being throughout the exhibition period.
