Do you worry about waste? Do you want to say no to refuse? Do you like making stuff up? If the answer to any of these is yes, then come along and join us for a Waste Stories workshop. The _Waste Stories_ team are running two creative workshops to accompany their _Future Archaeologies of Marine Litter_ exhibit. You'll get a special tour of the exhibit followed by the chance to make up some stuff about rubbish in the company of like-minded (or very different) people. Come along, look at some bits of rubbish and make up a story!
Suitable for: adults and young people with an interest in using their imagination to tackle the problem of waste.
Waste is one of our biggest challenges. The waste we produce – and the ways we dispose of it – pollutes our environment and gobbles up energy. In Scotland alone, we produce millions of tonnes of waste every year – and while we currently recycle just under half of our household waste, recycling produces pollution and uses energy too. It’s time we got creative, reduced our trash and turned it into treasure.
Even though we know we need to do something, people can often feel powerless. Stories can change that, by helping us to see things in new ways and from new angles. Waste Stories provides a space for people to make up and share stories. It’s our imagination, energy and willingness to challenge the status quo that offer hope for change.
