Calling all local artists! The Mid-Western Regional Council is currently asking individuals and groups to get creative with their waste and turn it into a masterpiece for the Waste 2 Art competition.
The annual event is a celebration of the re-use and recycling of waste across the Netwaste region through arts and crafts. It aims to challenge the way we look at waste while also giving aspiring and professional artists the chance to get creative.
Individuals, community members, artists and schools who currently reside in the NetWaste region are all invited to take part by turning waste into an art form of their choice.
Each year the Waste 2 Art challenge focuses on a different theme, with this year’s theme being “Plastic Bags and Soft Plastic Packaging”. This can serve as inspiration for creative works, however any recyclable material can be used as long as it demonstrates the re-use and recycling of waste.
The most inspiring work from each section in all categories will receive a prize and winning entries will be eligible for entry into the Regional Waste to Art competition.
There is plenty of time to start thinking about your creations, with entries open until 5pm on Monday, 15 May 2017.
Exhibition entries are to be delivered to The Stables, Mudgee on Thursday, 18 May between 10am and 4pm.
Those who don’t want to enter can still join in on the event by heading along to the exhibition at the Stables on Saturday 20 May from 10.00am to 4.00pm and Sunday 21 May from 10.00am to 2.00pm.
The official opening and award presentation will take place on Saturday 20 May at midday.
