The Waste 2 Art competition is returning to Eskbank House Museum in 2018.

The art program focuses on works made from reused and recycled materials, challenging people to think differently about waste.

“Waste 2 Art is an opportunity to think creatively about waste, and how materials can be reused rather than going to landfill,” Lithgow City Council Mayor Stephen Lesslie said.

Waste 2 Art is open to all residents who reside in the Lithgow local government area. The competition gives professional artists and the entire creative community the opportunity to share their work, and the chance to be selected to represent Lithgow in the regional competition in Narromine.

Categories include primary school, secondary school, community, open (for professional artists), and the annual waste theme category – polystyrene.

Entry forms are available from the Lithgow City Council Customer Service, Lithgow library and Eskbank House Museum, and are due by April 12 at 5pm.
