Waste To Art Competition and Exhibition- Orange

By No Comments

Waste to Art is a community art exhibition and competition open to all local residents who reside in the NetWaste region. It engages the community and showcases creative works made from reused & recyclable waste materials.

Councils involved host a local competition and the winning artworks are then transported to a Regional Exhibition which is hosted by a different council each year. This year Oberon Council is hosting the Regional Exhibition.

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 schools and community groups to take up the challenge and create a new life for materials that would otherwise have been thrown away.

The Orange Exhibition will be held at the Orange City Library 11th -21st June 2019. The Exhibition launch and announcement of winners, Friday 14th June 2019, 5.30-6.30pm.

Pick up an entry form from the library, Orange City Council, The Orange Tourist Information Centre or get in contact with the organiser and we will send you out the documents. Entries will be received by the Orange Library from the 5th-7th June, 2019.
