Description:

LitterARTI, which makes art from litter, is set for a summer of events to celebrate Bristol Green Capital, the first UK city to gain the European green accolade.

The Bristol-based collective creates on-site live sculpture made from rubbish to raise awareness of plastic waste, engaging with the public through art, performance, music, and spectacle.

Thanks to a Bristol Green Capital 2015 Small Grants Award, LitterARTI, the Bristol-based organisation which makes art from litter, will be creating sculptures made from litter throughout the city with the public’s help to raise awareness about plastic waste.

It kicks off this Sunday Bank Holiday picking up litter after the finish of the fastest-growing race in Britain, the Bristol’s 10km run. LitterARTI with the help of members of the public, will be creating sculptures made from collected waste.

LitterARTI curator, Annali Grimes, says: “Everyone gets a chance to be creative and have fun with our accessible public art and performances, and enables us to think about rubbish, its environmental impact and how we can reduce it in fun and inspiring ways. “

Annali Grimes continues: “We are hoping to get this message spread far and wide all across Bristol to start reviewing our use of plastics. Through the mythical and the mystical we capture the imagination of young and old, encouraging us all to think deeper about these environmental challenges we face around climate change.”
