Invitation to Invest in a Creative Resourceful Future

Education combined with creativity is a powerful tool for creating and sustaining change for the better!

Established in 1993, the ART FROM TRASH exhibition is the first and longest running exhibition of its kind and an iconic and much loved exposé of creativity. Attracting over 120 artists and 5000 visitors annually, this event has proved itself as a powerful and much needed change agent for a better future.

Makers of all ages, styles and stages, from emerging talent to established practitioners, schools and community groups exhibit alongside each other in an exhibition of increasingly accomplished and thought-provoking works of art.

2016 saw a new kid on the block TRASHION.  In keeping with the continuing surge in popularity of bespoke clothing and the up-cycling of second hand wares, TRASHION is a fashion parade gala event that works with designers, artists, students and fashion slaves to showcase and inspire outfits both extreme, wild and wacky but also sustainable clothing ranges and accessories to promote recycling.

The popularity and broad appeal of ART FROM TRASH and TRASHION continues to grow and we once again look to expand the event to keep our artists and audiences free of limitations. We invite you to share this success and opportunity as we champion these local initiatives of global significance. 


We value an authentic sponsor/partner relationship that is respected by all involved. It is important to the projects that together we remain loyal, engaged and rewarded. We will strive to deliver unique partnership opportunities that are beneficial to your business. We are confident ART FROM TRASH and TRASHION will provide significant exposure and business rewards and we are seeking three special principal relationships to work with us on the 2017 - 2019 events and their development. We are calling these supporters Rare Earths.

Offer your staff a unique experience where we provide an arts facilitator to work with your team to use your business waste materials to create an artistic work to be exhibited. The artworks will have a featured place in the exhibition venue and can then be displayed in your work place. A fantastic left of centre group exercise, Christmas party activity or business anniversary celebration. But most importantly the art will be a hands-on example that shows you care about the future; to your customers, your staff and our audience, much more interesting than a pull up banner and can be renewed every year. Alternatively, we can create the artwork on your behalf.
