WASTE NOT WANT NOT: Turn trash into treasure in Lake Mac

You know what they say, one person’s trash is another’s treasure.

Well, the Lake Macquarie Sustainable Neighbourhoods Alliance are putting that axiom into practice with the 2019 Waste To Art Exhibition.

The exhibition aims to challenge the way we look at waste by inviting artists to repurpose discarded objects into objet d’art.

“The creations prompt us to explore local waste issues, consider how we might be contributing to the problem, and what we can do to move to a more sustainable future,” Sustainable Neighbourhoods secretary Steve Dewar said.

.“Waste and plastic pollution has an enormous impact on the local and global environment, and interrupting this through art can have a great impact from the community.”

Sustainable Neighbourhoods is calling for individuals, schools and community groups to showcase their artistic ability and share their ideas about waste, litter and overconsumption through art.

The artworks can be either sculptural, functional, or imagery-based.

Registration is free and open to all community members. Registrations close on Monday 16 September.

The exhibition will be held between from Saturday 12 October to Sunday 1 December at SEEN@Swansea (228/234 Pacific Highway)
