DLR Upcycle Competition

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council is hosting an upcycle exhibition in partnership with IADT (Institute of Art, Design and Technology) at the Lexicon Theatre this December.

As part of this project the council is looking for local resident groups to get involved by upcycling everyday household items, with some great prizes on offer.

The 5 best designs will win €200 for their chosen resident group and will be displayed alongside other fabulous upcycled designs at the exhibition. What’s more the designers will receive a plus one invite to the most prestigious Victorian Garden Party of the year, hosted by Lord and Lady of WEEElandia!

Let your imagination run wild and create wonderful new uses for those items you’d normally throw away and help inspire others to find new uses for every-day household items.

A Google Search of ‘Upcycle’ will provide you with plenty of inspiration, the daring might also search ‘Steampunk’ for more wonderful reuse inspiration…

Please let us know if you have any ideas and would like to get involved. Some members of the residents’ association are already talking about putting something together for this, and the more the merrier! Suitable for all age groups.
