Recycling Art Competition

DEADLINE : 30th January, 2017

Council invites Brisbane artists to submit an expression of interest for the Recycling Art Competition 2017 by 30 January 2017.

This competition explores the creative potential of reusing and recycling household items and furniture. It also aims to inspire people to see the possibility in items that may have otherwise have been thrown away.

The competition began in 2012 and was developed to raise awareness about Council’s tip shops at Acacia Ridge and Geebung –  a waste minimisation initiative designed to keep reusable furniture and items out of landfill. The tip shops are operated by the Endeavour Foundation; a non-government organisation that provides support and opportunities for people with a disability.
