A big thanks once again to all those who visited us at the Thrive Festival on Saturday 23rd July. The day was a great success. 52 participants took part in our Industri[us] game, each creating their own tag.
We discovered what local people throw away and inventive ideas for how to transform waste into value.
So here’s what happened…
Participants were asked:
What was the last item you threw out?
Was your item broken or intact?
Would you like to fix it or re-work it?
What value would you give your item before and after it’s transformation?
• re-working a broken umbrella into a kite
• fixing a wardrobe with sentimental value
• re-working a light bulb into a Christmas tree decoration
• re-using a plant pot to make a sandcastle
Check out all of the great results below…
Following the success of this event we hope to run it again and get more people re-thinking their waste.
