ArtWaves is proud to be unveiling a brand new strand for 2019, our Environmental Project. The festival understands the need for a greater understanding of plastic pollution and the impact this is having on our seas.

REFORM is an art and engineering collaboration, focusing on repurposing plastic. Artist, artisan and engineer will be showcasing their plastic repurposing machines for the public to shred plastic found on the local beaches, to learn about different plastics and reform their findings into useful and beautiful objects.
