Waste to Art is a community art exhibition and competition open to all local residents who reside in the NetWaste region. It engages the community and showcases creative works made from reused & recyclable waste materials.

Councils involved host a local competition and the winning artworks are then transported to a Regional Exhibition which is hosted by a different council each year. 2020 will see  Coonamble Shire Council hosting the annual Regional Exhibition. The theme for 2020 is steel and aluminium cans.

Waste to Art. White Trash

Waste 2 Art’s aim is to challenge peoples’ perceptions about ‘rubbish’ and 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.

Neck piece forged from scrap steel… ‘
