EMPOWERING THE COMMUNITY TO REDUCE, REUSE AND RECYCLE
The NightQuarter RepairLab and Community Container will be launching as part of a new focus empowering the community to reduce, reuse and recycle. The space will provide opportunities for the community to meet with skilled volunteers to repair and reuse furniture, clothes, jewellery, bicycles and more. It will have regular workshops on how to make art out of plastics, gardening, composting, recycling electronics, repurposing jewellery and glass. It will also be a space where local organisations and charities can pop up to connect with the local community.
Opportunities to partner with the space for creative collaborations, community initiatives, volunteer opportunities and more are now open on their website.
“The NightQuarter space is created from recycled materials, from shipping containers to reclaimed timbers to artworks created from salvaged plastics. The new site will feature a series of artworks created in collaboration with artist Tracie Eaton using reclaimed bubble wrap, cans and plastics.
Stallholders will use compostable packaging and containers and customers are encouraged to bring their own containers. We will be working with local charity organisation Wishlist and Envirobank to recycle bottles and cans.”
