Ready for a transformation?
Turn rubbish into a rainbow and shine a light on one of Hong Kong’s most pressing issues: marine pollution.
The findings on a beach range from shells to ghost-nets to driftwood to plastic. Everything will be our art material, no discrimination made. What looks beautiful to the eye is actually an environmental disaster that needs our attention more urgently than ever.
Bring refillable water-bottle, wear closed shoes, sun-protection and smiles.
Let’s make art not waste.
Curating-the-Beach is creating awareness towards zero-waste life style. We are not making waste disappear into black rubbish bags, but putting a spotlight on it.
The first step is finding and collecting colours (=marine debris). Participants are split into groups and each group will find one colour at a time. These colours are then combined to make a rainbow. What looks beautiful to the eye is actually an environmental disaster that needs our attention more urgently than ever.
Come join us and shine a light on this global catastrophe.
Plastic Free Seas is a Hong Kong based non-profit changing in the way we view and use plastics in society today; education and action campaigns.
