WASTE 2 ART 2017

Waste 2 Art are community art exhibitions celebrating the re-use and recycling of waste through arts and crafts and 2017 is the year of plastic bags and soft plastic packaging.

Waste 2 Art 2017 is being run in the Dubbo, Gilgandra and Mid-Western areas of our region – this exhibition and competition gives aspiring and professional artists the chance to explore and share their waste reduction message and provides a wonderful opportunity for all community members to showcase their artistic ability.
