Waste to Art



2 – 16 May 2015

Waste to Art is a community art exhibition and competition that showcases creative works made from reused & recyclable waste materials. This initiative invites schools, community groups and individuals to turn rubbish into an art form of their choice, from sculptures to clothing. 

The Waste to Art Community Art Exhibition is open to all community members, artists and schools located in the Blue Mountains City Council area. Entries are invited in 4 different categories: Primary School, High School, Community and Open.
Winners in each category will be selected by a panel of judges.
Winners will be announced at the Opening of the Waste to Art Exhibition at the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre.

Challenge the way we look at waste!

The winning artworks from each four categories will then be displayed at the Regional Competition in Bathurst in July 2015

This project is funded and presented by the Blue Mountains City Council.
