Upcycle Competition – Register your interest now

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council is hosting an upcycle exhibition in partnership with IADT (Institute of Art, Design and Technology) at the Lexicon Theatre this December.

As part of this project we are looking for local resident groups to get involved by upcycling everyday household items, with some great prizes on offer.

Google ‘Upcycle’ for more inspiring ideas!

The 5 best designs will win €200 for their chosen resident group and will be displayed alongside other fabulous upcycled designs at the exhibition. What’s more the designers will receive a plus one invite to the most prestigious Victorian Garden Party of the year, hosted by Lord and Lady of WEEElandia!

Let your imagination run wild and create wonderful new uses for those items you’d normally throw away and help inspire others to find new uses for every-day household items.

Staff and students from IADT will judge the entries at a date TBC during Re-use Month (October)

A Google Search of ‘Upcycle‘ will provide you with plenty of inspiration, the daring might also search ‘Steampunk‘ for more wonderful reuse inspiration…

Please email environ@dlrcoco.ie for further details and to register your interest.
