Artist Aquil Virani invited over 800 delegates to contribute to a collaborative painting at the International Life Saving Federationâ€™s 2017 World Conference on Drowning Prevention (WCDP) in Vancouver. Responses to the question, â€œWhat is the most effective action taking place in your community to prevent drowning?â€, were integrated into the collaborative artwork which was unveiled at the WCDP closing ceremonies on Thursday, October 19th, 2017.
