Civic Art Lab | Circular Economy & Recycling

July 9, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


This workshop is led by Agustina Besada (Sure We Can). Circular Economy is a movement that poses to re-think and re-design the traditional economic model into one where resources are repurposed, reused and recycled in closed loops. During the workshop, participants will learn about the Circular Economy principles, strategies and best practices, to then work in groups on specific cases to identify and brainstorm ideas to apply a Circular Economy approach.

Civic Art Lab 2017 is the third iteration of the project, designed as a pop-up gallery and workshop space in the East Village at Avenue C & 7th Street. The lab will be hosted in partnership with Marc Norov and the Creations Gallery, a mixed-use community pop-up space, adjacent to a community-based bike repair shop. Our programming will continue to be low cost for full registrants and free for individual registrants. These workshops, talks, and exhibitions are designed by volunteer artists, designers, and teachers who lead investigations into diverse themes such as: creative re-use; urban agriculture; sustainable architecture; health & well-being, and environmental justice, to name a few.
