SMART

Sustainably Made Art Competition and Exhibition

SMART

Sustainably Made Art Competition and Exhibition 


SMART is an opportunity to view throwaway materials through a new lens and show how they can be made into extraordinary artworks.  SMART has been held 3 times in Papakura in conjunction with our Sustainable Market. Entries have come from all age groups, and were in any genre. These resulted in a varied and stunning display of creativity, ingenuity and skill which have excited judges and the viewing public. SMART  is open to all to create and enter artworks of any genre made from junk and/or natural materials. You don’t have to be an ‘artist’ to enter. In fact, we encourage any one to have a go.  Held every 2nd year, the next SMART will be in winter 2021. More details to be provided in early 2021Check our  Events Calendar. 

Purpose 

SMART brings together individuals from across all sectors, as both competitors and volunteers, creating an event to celebrate and showcase Papakura’s  talent, and to put waste materials to good use.
