The Year of Textiles & Fast Fashion
EXHIBITION AND COMPETITION
WASTE 2 ART Mid-Western 2023 is a community art exhibition and competition open to all local residents. It showcases creative works made from reused and recyclable waste materials. The aim is to challenge people’s 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 individuals, artists, makers, schools and community groups to take up the challenge and create a new life for materials that would otherwise have been thrown away. Instead of ending up in landfill, these waste materials can be turned into fantastic works of art.
This competition gives aspiring and professional artists the chance to explore and share their ‘waste reduction’ message.
This year’s waste theme is textiles and fast fashion.
