What is the “Not Waste Festival” all about?

Celebrating the creative and practical reuse, repair and upcycle of items destined for landfill. Focusing on reducing waste on a community level, through discussion, experience and demonstration.


When is the next “Not Waste Festival”?

The next Not Waste Festival will be held  in Denmark Civic Centre April 5th – 7th 2019


What happened to “Art Not Waste”?

Art Not Waste has been so popular that we decided to expand it to include reuse, repair, upcycling and really anything that helps divert and (or) reduce landfill. Not Waste Festival is about more involvement from the community, with all kinds of workshops leading up to and during the event.
