The Parkes Waste 2 Art Community Art Exhibition is now open in the Coventry Room at the Parkes Library & Cultural Centre. Come along and be amazed by what can be made with soft plastics and other recycled & reused materials.
Waste 2 Art’s 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 schools and community groups to take up the challenge and create a new life for materials that would otherwise have been thrown away.
This exhibition and competition gives aspiring and professional artists the chance to explore and share their waste reduction messages whilst showcasing their artistic ability.
The 2022 theme is Soft Plastics, but entries created using any type of material normally considered waste are welcomed.
