Waste 2 Art Award Presentation 2023

Waste 2 Art

WASTE 2 ART is a community art exhibition and competition open to all residents of the NetWaste region. It showcases creative works made from reused 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 2 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 or considered useless. Over the years many materials have been used, items like soft plastics, tin cans, bottle tops, plastic bags, parts from rusty farm machinery, scrap metal, bread tags, the options are limitless. Instead of ending up in landfill these waste materials can be turned into fantastic works of art.

A specific waste item is featured as part of Waste to Art each round in an attempt to highlight problem issues, and this year is the Year of Textiles & Fast Fashion
