UPCYCLE 

created and facilitated by Verena Curr

Sept - Dec 2019

Reclaimed and reinvented objects take on a fun new meaning with this activation for Powerkids: Little Artists at Play. Pass through a bottle garden maze and tip toe over a raindrop pathway into a wave of bubbles. Jump, pop and dance together before settling down in a cosy igloo to watch, relax and play. UPCYCLE provides visitors with opportunities to meet, make, move, listen, and explore together. With a focus on environmental sustainability, UPCYCLE was created using consciously sources materials...giving them a second playful life.
