SIFT is a proud partner of SCAPE’s “Rebuild a Recyclable City”. This wonderful initiative uses recycled materials and is a really good educational campaign to raise awareness for our next generation on taking care of our environment .
SIFT believes that this programme is a proactive approach to putting recycling in the frontline of education for our children and also provide a platform for their creativity to show their future vision for our city.
Suitable for kids ages 6-12 years old, FREE art packs for the “Rebuild a Recyclable City” project are available from any Christchurch City Library and SCAPE also has Kid’s Workshops for the “Rebuild a Recyclable City” for those interested to attend.
Rebuild a Recyclable City – Kids’ Workshop
Dates: Sat, 5 and 19 November 2011
Times: For both dates, you have two options: 10.30am – 12.00pm and 1.30pm – 3.00pm
Venue: Creative Junk, 25 Disraeli Street, Addington, Christchurch.
Drawing inspiration from SCAPE Artist Joanna Langford’s The High Country, this project will give the kids an opportunity to rebuild a favourite part of their city out of recyclable materials. We, at SIFT, also believe in the limitless power of creativity and we hope that this will provide a new insight on how to use the recyclables you have around the house as an art project .
SIFT’s vision of innovative waste minimisation finds support in this great project and we look forward to other creative project partnerships in the Canterbury area. Hand in hand with the kids of today, we hope to raise a new generation of corporate and individual initiatives that will define a concrete way of taking care of the environment.
