Recycled Creativity Festival
The last festival of the summer has an own Throwaway Society with creative workshops, films, discussions and music. Remains of plastic, electronics and paper is being transformed through creative ideas into new useful, funny or simply beautiful items. Recycling also works just as well with music and film material. In this year artists, volunteers and young people from diverse backgrounds realize the festival with their own interpretations of recycling.
