Design for Reuse - Wellington - Public talk - 1st March 2016

Juliet Arnott, Founder of Rekindle is being hosted at Massey University College of Creative Arts in Wellington on Tuesday 1st March 2016, and will give a public talk about design for reuse. This will involve sharing the evolution of Rekindle's projects, including the recently launched Resource: Rise Again project. Resource: Rise Again is Rekindle's fourth major project aimed at diverting reusable resources from waste.

The Resource: Rise Again project will fund and support 5 designers or design teams across New Zealand, between April and October 2016, to research and design new solutions for resources that businesses currently pay to dispose of in landfill. This is the first time in New Zealand that a research and design program has been established specifically to address waste through reuse solutions. Rekindle is now calling for designers to submit their interest in the project; the deadline for submissions is 11th March 2016.

This talk will discuss the role of designers and other creative practitioners in this field of waste minimisation. Businesses that wish to see greater resource efficiency within their waste management, via solutions for reuse, are also encouraged to attend.

Tuesday 1st March, drinks from 5.30pm for 6pm lecture start.
