Some of Melbourne's best known artists created water-inspired works as part of a WaterAid fundraiser last month.

Frances Cannon was among over 20 artists to contribute their work at the one-night-only exhibition, which was run by graphic designer and WaterAid support Louise Brough.

WATER. Exhibition for Change raised over $6000 with all proceeds from the event going to WaterAid Australia. Who Gives A Crap Co-Founder and CEO Simon Griffiths spoke at the event.

Hundreds of Melburnians braved the cold to attend the event at Glasshaus Inside, with a long trail of people waiting outside the venue to get in.
