Transforming Our Trash

We understand we are responsible for the reality we live in; therefore, we must work hard to go further towards a more sustainable society, in harmony with nature.

A CREATIVE RECYCLING WORKSHOP

Joel & Tati are “artivists” (artist + activists) who believe that certain changes do not come from leaders, but surface from collaboration, dialogue and social exchange. For some years the duo have travelled with a project called Permact (www.facebook.com/Permact) offering workshops like this so as to give the opportunity for people to rethink about consumerism and waste.

Transforming Our Trash

Join Tatiana & Joel to learn various ways to reuse some of the solid residues generated in our homes to create many different objects. Examples will be provided of the many options we have to increase the impact created from the trash that we generate in our daily lives.

This is also an opportunity to talk about and learn how to reduce our consumerism and waste to become more conscious consumers.

Each participant will exercise their creativity to create useful and/or beautiful objects from the so-called trash instead of simply wasting it.

We are proud to congratulate Jane Zdansky and John Schwinghamer in the purchase of a 200 year old heritage building on Brier Island. Jane and John have been among our biggest supporters at Main & Station. Jane will paint & sculpt , John will write and take over janitorial duties. They have taken the responsibility of saving this beautiful structure from the ravages of time. This our first success at helping an artist and an economist to resettle in Nova Scotia, and save another iconic heritage building. We welcome their continued association with us and we expect to do lots of good things with them.  Our next project together will be announced around solstice time.

Jane’s work, www.janezdansky.com, (paintings and sculpture) can be seen at Main & Station, John’s book, Purple Chips, is available at the book shop next to the cafe.
