Woodhouse Ridge Festival, Hyde Park, Leeds, 05/07/15

Museum of Contemporary Rubbish is participating in Woodhouse Ridge Festival in collaboration with Flora Hochrein of the University of Leeds.

Postcards of selected items from the Leeds Collection will be available for visitors.

Exhibit #0245

Flora says: "Waste is one of the most pressing issues today. Particularly plastic waste poses many threats to our environment. Currently, only 12% of waste is recycled and plastic products are still consumed excessively. When walking through Woodhouse Moor after a sunny day, waste issues and careless attitudes become very apparent.

This is why I have developed a research project as part of my Masters thesis, targeting this issue and sparking a dialogue about waste and sustainability. The project aims to raise awareness for local and global waste issues. Using art as a medium of universal communication, the goal is to deliver issues to a diverse range of people, and make sustainability engaging and relatable."

Rubbish Conversations #1

Thank you to everyone who made it to the opening of the new Museum of Contemporary Rubbish exhibition.

Lots of Rubbish Conversations were held varying from the price of scrap, value systems, recycling to the specifics about my work.

A couple of people said the Rubbish Conversations element made the show for them and they enjoyed talking to me about my work and rubbish in general which was really great to hear.

It's possible that I'll go back and talk to a group of students at a later date during the show which could also be opened up to the public too for Rubbish Conversations #2.
