Get creative with your old junk
Get inspired by your junk and create a piece of art for the Cassowary Coast Family Daycare annual Junk Art Competition.
Being held on Saturday 25 September at Warrina Lakes commencing at 9.30am, the competition is open to individuals and groups of all ages. There are six categories open for entry which will be judged by a local artist.
Waste Management and Innovation portfolio holder Councillor Teresa Millwood encourages schools, community groups and individuals to get involved to showcase how they can turn their junk into innovative art pieces.
“We encourage the whole community to get involved and create artwork designed from ‘trash’ material such as plastic bottles, cans, Styrofoam, cardboard, fishing line, magazines and discarded metal material.
“Within our culture, many things are often used once and then thrown away without a second thought.
“As a community we need to rethink how we use single-use items and move towards a more sustainable mindset, focusing on prolonging an items lifespan by reusing and recycling.
“Through this competition we hope to bring awareness and conversations amongst our community around how we can better repurpose items to divert them from going into landfill.
The entries must be no bigger than 1m2 and be suitable for a Public Display. They must be brought to Warrina Lakes on Sunday 26 September for judging. For more information visit Council’s website.
