Make Art Not Rubbish ... A Secondary School art project o-ordinated and facilitated by Draíocht, sponsored by Vodafone Ireland, January to April 2010.
Well known artist and sculptor Cris Neumann facilitated the creation of 3D works by Coolmine and Hartstown Community School students in a project that was a fun reflection of Vodafone Ireland's Green Agenda Policy. This educational and environmentally innovative visual arts project explored the concepts of communication, mobility and technology and how these concepts can work in the reduction and recycling of waste.
The art works resulting from the project generated zero waste by being produced from Vodafone Ireland's recycled materials. This process worked to educate students about the importance of environmental awareness, while giving them an opportunity to improve their arts skills.
The project culminated in an exhibition in Draíocht's First Floor Gallery before travelling to Vodafone Ireland's HQ during their Recycling Awareness Week.
