Services we offer
We are calling out to all year 4-7 primary school classes / students in the Cities of Holdfast Bay, Marion and Onkaparinga to create artwork that illustrates the theme: Circular Economy.
Students are invited to create a piece of art, either wall art or sculpture, using any medium or combination of media as long as the work meets the requirements designated in the Competition Rules (details below).
This competition is a collaboration between the Southern Region Waste Resource Authority (SRWRA) and the three councils to celebrate the new recycling sorting facility opening soon in Seaford Heights (where all our recycling bin contents will soon go!).
The winner will be invited to present their artwork at the launch of the new recycling sorting facility, where their artwork will also be displayed in the education centre. The winner, along with two runners-up, will also receive bench seats for their school made from recycled plastic (from the stuff dropped off at supermarkets for recycling!) valued at $550 each.
The artwork should address this year’s theme of Circular Economy. The subject matter of the art can centre around different aspects of this theme.
It could focus on how to avoid/reduce waste through recycling, document the processing life of materials or explore new technologies involved in showcasing how, by designing out waste and pollution, keeping products and materials in use, and regenerating natural systems, we can reinvent everything.
These are just a few ideas, and should no way limit the artist into how the theme can be represented.
City of Marion's Waste and Recycling Education Officer is available to deliver free presentations and workshops on recycling and waste management to residents, community groups, schools and businesses as part of our commitment to encouraging, promoting and supporting waste reduction.
There are many fantastic resources available online for waste and recycling education from the following sites:
