A competition where less is more
Is it possible to live completely waste free? In this multi-award winning, festival favourite, partners Jen and Grant go head to head in a competition to see who can swear off consumerism and produce the least garbage. Their light-hearted competition is set against a darker examination of the problem waste. Even as Grant and Jen start to garner interest in their project, they struggle to find meaning in their minuscule influence on the large-scale environmental impacts of our “throw-away society”. Described as An Inconvenient Truth meets Super Size Me, The Clean Bin Project features laugh out loud moments, stop motion animations, and unforgettable imagery. Captivating interviews with renowned artist, Chris Jordan and TED Lecturer Captain Charles Moore, make this film a fun and inspiring call to individual action that speaks to crowds of all ages.
Come along for an evening of shared food and conversation, followed by a free screening of 'The Clean Bin Project'
6 pm - Potluck community dinner, please bring a plate of food to share*
6.45 pm - Guest speaker: Q&A with Niki Wallace. Niki's an 'almost' zero-waster and PhD candidate (UniSA) researching sustainability within the design sector. We'll hear about Niki's new project 'Encore by Touche de Paris', a fashion service that is about shared access to items, rather than individual ownership (sharing economy).
7 pm - Film Screening
