Celebrating the reuse and recycling of waste!


Waste 2 Art Competition

It’s time to get making! NetWaste and the Parkes Shire Council are collaborating to host the annual Waste 2 Art Competition and Exhibition for 2021.


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 2021 theme is Aluminum and Steel Cans, but entries created using any type of material normally considered waste are welcomed.


The Parkes Waste 2 Art Community Art Competition and Exhibition is open to all community members, artists and schools currently residing in the Parkes Shire.


The Outback Arts Gallery in Coonamble will be hosting the regional exhibition in July 2021, featuring the winners from the local competitions in the NetWaste region.
