This year Kingborough Council will host the biennial Salvaged Art Exhibition at the Kingborough Community Hub from Friday 22 – Sunday 24 September.
Kingborough Mayor, Paula Wriedt said the project was a creative way to reimagine waste with a focus on creativity, recycling and reuse.
“Council is calling for entries from all creative people, hobbyists, young people, community groups and schools who can redesign and repurpose waste materials into a piece of artwork,” Cr Wriedt said.
“The art exhibition’s theme this year is focused on the concept of Health and Wellbeing in Kingborough.
“Wellbeing includes those things that help you to feel healthy in your mind, body and heart.
“Things that provide a sense of belonging, purpose, joy, gratitude, hope and a connection to nature.
“There will be prizes in the Open, Amateur, Young People, Children and Schools sections as well as a People’s Choice Award.”
The categories and prizes available include:
- Open Award – $500
- Amateur Artist Award – $250
- 13 – 17 years Award – $150
- Up to 12 years Award – $50
- Schools – $250
