Salvaged Art

The biennial Salvaged Art Exhibition is a competition managed by Kingborough Council.

Entries are now closed. We asked entrants to create an artwork from recycled, repurposed and reused materials.

In 2023, Salvaged Art will carry the theme of Health & Wellbeing in Kingborough.

We asked,  through your artwork, to let us know what makes you feel joy, gratitude, hope, a sense of belonging or purpose and/or a connection to nature.


The exhibition will run at the Kingborough Community Hub on Friday 22 – Sunday 24 September 10am-2pm.

This project is a creative step towards reimagining how we think of waste and builds a focus on recycling and reuse.

The categories and prizes available include:

  • Open Award – $500
  • Amateur Artist Award – $250
  • 13 – 17 years Award – $150
