Kitty: A purrfect way to turn Waste to Art
by Brighton Council
A range of fabulous artworks were created for the Waste to Art competition in March as part of the Big Weekend of Sustainable Living Ideas. The popular vote winner was Erin Neale with her work, “Kitty”.
Brighton Council and Sustainable Living Tasmania partnered to run the Waste to Art competition, with entries on display at the Big Weekend of Sustainable Living Ideas. There was a range of high-quality works created by students from Brighton Primary School, East Derwent Primary School and St Paul’s Early Learning Centre with kids aged three and above entering the competition. Several artworks have been on display at the Bridgewater Library and some artworks have been purchased for permanent display at Brighton Council offices.
Brighton Council Mayor Leigh Gray said, “We are lucky to have so many sustainability initiatives in our local schools. We regularly see examples of Food Organics and Garden Organics (FOGO) recycling, growing produce on site, planting trees and are inspired by their climate change actions. All Waste to Art entries received sustainability prizes from the Brighton Council to support our local champions.”
