#streakybay ArtsUp proudly presents the much anticipated exhibition and art prize of 2017 "Treasured Again : Art of the Upcycled"
Resourceful (adjective) : defined as having the ability to find quick and clever ways to overcome difficulties.
Remember when you were little and you could make a robot out of everyday objects like cardboard boxes, pegs, foil, textas and tape? Or you could make the coolest sculpture of a dinosaur from just play dough or sand as a resource? Your passionate and creative play helped you fire up your mind and imagine new futures for each resource. Creative people exercise resourcefulness on a regular basis, being innovative when faced with challenges, artistic or other. Industry leaders and educators now remark that resourcefulness is a highly desirable attribute to leaders and designers which can help put them ahead in highly competitive industries where 'new and improved' sets the pace. Resourcefulness and creativity are skills that can be sharpened, and can lead to solutions that better products, our thinking and our world.
ArtsUp challenged artists across #eyrepeninsula to create an artwork that upcycled an object, imagining a life for it outside of the, at times, 'likely path to landfill', or stagnant being. Artists have been resourceful, and artworks are beautiful demonstrations of what can be made with resources that are found, discarded and surplus. You can be part of the #waronwasteau too by supporting this local event; perhaps be part of the circular economy and #buylocal , or talk to the artists about their upcycling techniques so they inspire your own innovations at home. Come, see for yourself, be an ethical consumer and walk away with renewed passions for art and resourcefulness!
