The Sims Metal WASTE TO ART & design 2021

 EXHIBITION AND COMPETITION

The Year of Aluminium and Steel Cans

WASTE TO ART is a community art exhibition and competition open to all local residents who reside in the NetWaste region. It showcases creative works made from reused & recyclable waste materials. The aim is to challenge peoples’ perceptions about ‘rubbish’ and to celebrate the reuse and recycling of waste through arts and crafts.

Waste to Art provides an innovative approach to waste education, invites individuals, schools and community groups to take up the challenge and create a new life for materials that would otherwise have been thrown away, considered useless: bottle tops, plastic bags, parts from rusty farm machinery, old horse shoes, buttons, and the list goes on. Instead of ending up in landfill these waste materials can be turned into fantastic works of art.

The Competition will include categories to challenge and stimulate the imagination.
