REUSE is an annual exposition that serves as an opportunity for non-profit organizations, companies, professionals and aspiring creative talents to showcase their accomplishments in the fields of social responsibility and sustainability via a range of artistic mediums and interactive activities for the general public.
REUSE aims to promote eco-friendly living and provide a platform for those who strive to incorporate this principle into their work. As in previous years, REUSE will be divided into various modules, as we try to include as many eco-friendly initiatives as possible. This year REUSE 5.0 will held at the Australian College of Kuwait from 18th to 22nd April 2012 and the modules include the following:
There will be multiple zones dedicated to providing attendees with a healthy mix of local/organic drinks and snacks. Restaurants, gourmet shops and lounges that carry organic food or incorporate environmental sustainability in their activities are welcome to apply.
This is a zone dedicated to highlighting social programs in the MENA region dedicated to sustainable development. All civil society organizations, corporate social responsibility programs or independent initiatives that promote this ideal can apply for a space at the exposition.
This zone will be dedicated to showcasing the best works of students from various schools and universities around Kuwait. The works need to be made entirely out of scrap/recycled materials.
REUSE community exclusively invites teachers and art directors of schools / universities to apply (not individual students). REUSE will engage an extensive list of schools and university art educators to embed REUSE into their fall curriculum with the output being an exhibition held on their campus. en.v will attend these exhibitions and select the best works to showcase at REUSE 5.0. Selected students are invited to sell their chosen artworks at REUSE 5.0 and keep 100% of the profits! The best student artwork showcased at REUSE 5.0 will also win a $1000 cash prize!
This extension zone is meant to allow self-employed youth, freelance individuals, and members of the community at large to bring in crafts and second hand items from home and put them on display for sale to attendees. Innovative offerings will be the primary parameter for the selection.
REUSE 5.0 will host a series of training workshops for three days in the field of sustainability and creativity. These workshops will be conducted by globally renowned experts in the field of design and the arts. Students, graphic designers, and artists are invited to apply for and attend these workshops.
A speakers’ forum will also be held during the course of the workshops and will feature exciting discussion topics by a panel of international experts.
The main stage at REUSE 5.0 will play host to several live acoustic music performances during the course of the exposition. Performers’ names will be announced soon. You are invited to book your tickets for these performances (in advance) as the availability of seats will be limited.
en.v invites the community at large to bring their scrap paper, cardboard, plastic, aluminum, and glass from home to the REUSE 5.0 exposition. We will segregate all waste on-site and have it recycled on your behalf. Start saving everything today!
We organize school tours to raise awareness of environmental & social issues among school children in order to make a positive impact on their lifestyle. Educators can book a guided school tour of REUSE 5.0 (in advance) for their respective class(es) / grades.
Film Screening Room
In this zone we will be screening documentaries and films related to environmental and social issues worldwide. We welcome submissions by amateur or professional directors and producers for consideration.
