Previous Projects & Events
Over the years we have organised and hosted a brilliant collection of fun, creative and exciting events with upcycling and community engagement at their core.
From upcycled fashion shows with emerging and established designers to entire orchestras made from rubbish, we look to waste to deliver key events and art installations that raise awareness of the importance of creativity in the fight for our environment, social inclusion and empowerment.
