A community art project by Colourful Collective and Hume City Council, exploring the impact of plastic pollution on wildlife in waterways through art, education and awareness-raising.
During a time of necessary separation, students and community members are invited to participate in the creation of a collaborative educational art piece, highlighting the impact of plastic pollution on our waterways and wildlife.
Using plastic waste accumulated during lockdown, participants are invited to conduct a Waste Brand Audit, to collect valuable data around which companies are producing the most plastic and plastic packaged products. Then, using this waste as a resource, participants are guided and inspired to transform the plastic waste into beautiful fish, check out the work from some students in the virtual gallery below.
We also hope to bring the project together in a moment of reunion, as a physical exhibition at the Hume Town Hall Gallery, once it is safe to do so.
This project is now open for all community members to participate, we encourage you to make your own fish and learn about the plastic problem!
