WASTE 2 ART

Waste To Art is a community art exhibition and competition showcasing reused & recyclable waste materials. This exciting and innovative challenge invites schools, community groups and individuals to transform rubbish into art and design.

Dubbo Regional Council is a proud NetWaste member and supports community's commitment to re-use and recycle through creative expression. While the artworks do not have to be made using the theme Aluminium and Steel Cans, the theme provides a focus for waste challenges and education programs.

 

We encourage you to start your creative process now as entries close at 5pm on Friday 5 March!
