April is Earth month (though we think every month is!)
nanopod: Hybrid Studio is a Friend of Live Earth- to take part in Earth month and Earth Day celebrations, outreach, and education nanopod will be hosting Garbage Art workshops at the Ontario Science Centre.
What is Live Earth?
Founded by Emmy-winning producer Kevin Wall, in partnership with former U.S. Vice President Al Gore, Live Earth was built upon the belief that entertainment has the power to transcend social and cultural barriers to move the world community to action. A for-profit company, Live Earth seeks to leverage the power of entertainment through integrated events, media, and the live experience to ignite a global movement aimed at solving the most critical environmental issues of our time
Garbage Art at the OSC:
Workshops suggesting alternative ways of recycling garbage into usable and occasionally wearable items.
Garbage includes: used bicycle inner tubes, potato chip bags, computer cable, telephone wire, plastic water bottles, etc. Recommended for kids 12+, however families are more than welcome to work with their young children and help create fun recycled accessories.
Join resident artists from nanopod: Hybrid Studio in making all kinds of jewelry and accessories from whatever we can dig out of our garbage bins, as well as items collected locally.
