Entries are now open for Waste 2 Art


It's the year of packaging.


Waste 2 Art is an annual community art exhibition and competition open to all residents of the Bathurst region. Waste 2 Art aims to challenge peoples’ perceptions about waste and to celebrate the reuse and recycling of waste through arts and crafts.


Council is inviting individuals, 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, waste Packaging can be turned into fantastic works of art.


Entry forms, resources and further information are available www.bathurst.nsw.gov.au/Services/Waste-Recycling/Waste-2-Art
