Art From Trash is an annual community event that encourages the reuse of discarded materials in the production of visual art. The exhibition is open to all ages and is a great opportunity for many first time and emerging artists.
Art From Trash is instrumental in promoting creative reuse, and, while the exhibition is a lot of fun, there is an underlying message to use the earth’s resources wisely and to minimise the inappropriate disposal of limited resources.
Art From Trash is a great platform for artists to launch themselves into the public arena. The exhibition is non-selective and for a reasonable entry fee, artists receive great exposure to a large number of the public, the arts community, and public officials, who have opened many of our exhibitions. Art From Trash includes a People’s Choice Award (voted on by the public), a Resource- ‘Scrap’ [Sustainable creative resourceful arts practice] participation awards for Schools & Community Groups, and the Wearable Art Award.
