We love the Waste to Art project, it’s the ultimate in sustainable creativity.

The STA Waste to Art project is an ongoing program of creative opportunities for our communities that demonstrates our commitment to the environment and waste reduction.

The centrepiece is the annual Wollondilly Waste to Art Prize – our Region’s Flagship Waste to Art event which STA delivers in partnership with Wollondilly Shire Council. It’s a fabulous project featuring amazing works made from waste and creative workshops for the public and with schools.  FIND OUT MORE

STA are committed to maintaining a vigilant awareness of the global environmental emergency.  Waste to Art builds capacity among cultural sector practitioners and organisations for professional and volunteer-led arts organisations towards their own sustainability.
