Art from Trash 2021

We are currently assessing our capacity to curate our fantastic community arts program 'Art From Trash'.  


We love Art From Trash and Resource Work Coopeartive sponsor and run this event each year using surpluss from the South Hobart Tip Shop.  In 2021, due to covid restrictions, we have limited capacity to open Art From Trash to the public in numbers.  We are currenly assesing the viability of running Art From Trash considering our reduced capacity as a result of the fire in 2020.  We will keep you posted and make an announcement via our website and social media ASAP. 


Thanks for your understanding.


The team from Art from Trash



Art From Trash is an annual exhibition that encourages the reuse of discarded materials in the production of amazing visual art.

Established in 1993, the ART FROM TRASH exhibition has become 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. 

Held in the historic precinct of Salamanca in the Salamanca Arts Centre's Long Gallery, this exhibition is for everyone.
