Waste 2 Art 2016

Theme > Year of the used tyre

The annual Netwaste Waste 2 Art competition is a community art exhibition and competition and is open to everyone across our region (Bourke, Cobar, Coonamble, Walgett and Warren shires). The aim is to celebrate the reuse and recycling of waste through arts and crafts. Waste to Art provides an innovative approach to waste education, invites schools and community groups to take up the challenge and create a new life for materials that would otherwise have been thrown away.
