Face Your Waste

 

Face Your Waste is an event exhibiting the work of creatives in the art and music scene, who have taken up the challenge of finding creative solutions to the accumulation of plastic waste that is destined for landfill and the oceans. The event has been set up to show the public that big changes have small beginnings and that by using your creativity you are able to make a difference and create something beautiful out of the unloved.

Creatives have been selected from around the world including Australian artist Freya Jobbins, illustrator Isabella Cotier and artist Andrew Macgregor  to name a few. There will also be live music performances from up and coming rap artists focusing on environmental issues and workshops from ethical brands such as Novel Skincare and LUSH cosmetics sharing their knowledge on how to reduce your impact on waste  in a conscious consumerist world.

To add, the venue host, Dream Bags Jaguar Shoes, will also be offering a discount on the 8th of June if you bring your own reusable drink containers.
