Sustainable Art Challenge
The Sustainable Wearable Art Challenge is back for 2021!
All entries will be walking down the catwalk at 3:30pm on Sunday 25th of July at Baycourt.
Bring along your friends and family to watch a night of sustainable fashion and see the Awards Ceremony for all competitions.
Sustainable Wearable Art Competition
Create a wearable art masterpiece from the pack of materials provided by the ReMaker Space and Envirohub. You MUST use at least 75% of this pack. You can also use “found” materials such as items that were otherwise considered trash or you bought from an op shop. The materials do not have to be soft materials, this can be anything you already own that could be transformed into wearable art. The only rule
48 hour Second Hand Fashion Competition
Curate, Style and upcycle an outfit from second hand clothing. Use your design eye to create an exciting, fresh and modern look out of rescued resources sourced from the the ReMaker Space, Tauranga. You can purchase other second hand accessories to compliment your look.
Lock it in your diaries, spread the word, start making your creation(s)
The Sustainable Art Challenge promotes awareness of Environmental Issues through Art.
For 2021 we are offering a slightly new model. The kaupapa of The Sustainable Art Challenge is the same but we have a slightly new format and brief. You will still rock your wearable art and designs down the runway to showcase and celebrate your work with your friends and family.
Indulge your creativity with a combination of the following: Sustainability, Innovation, Creativity, Wearability, Stage Impact, Functionality.
Things to consider:
Think about the impact you are making with the materials you take, taking seashells from the beach is removing a natural item from the environment which could have been a hermit crabs home. Rather if you took a bottle cap this is removing a bit of rubbish from the environment and also diverting it from landfill.
What are you going to use to hold your garment together with? Using new cable ties or large quantities of cellotape can be more harmful to the environment as you are creating more waste.
