WASTEART 2004 (article first published : 2004-03-17)

The year 2002 saw South Africa acting as host for one of the globe’s most important summits in terms of the future – The World Summit on Sustainable Development. At that event, EnviroServ had a vision – practically implementing sustainability while uplifting local communities. The culmination of that vision is the EnviroServ WasteArt 2004 Expo.

The inaugural EnviroServ WasteArt 2004 Expo will see a five day showcase of waste art and functional objects made from waste materials and sourced from across the country. Running from June 23 to 27 at the Sandton Square in Johannesburg, EnviroServ WasteArt 2004 Expo promises to not only provide the whole family with an informative and fun day out, but will also promote principles of sustainability and support local artists and entrepreneurs in their efforts to better their own lives.

In addition to the colourful waste art displays and numerous functional waste crafts and curios on display, local talents will be given scope to work on site crafting art and objects from waste in what is to be called a Living Treasures arena. The expo will also see a Gala Event and Fashion Show featured to showcase innovative, wearable art.

To participate in the exhibition or for more information contact Samantha van Rensburg on 011 884 7700 or visit www.wasteart.com
