Syn Art 2030 is an international art and creativity movement involving budding, amateur and professional artists and art enthusiasts to create outstanding functional art made from waste and found objects with particular emphasis on using non-recyclable plastic waste. ‘Syn Art 2030’ aims at synergy of novel ideas to turn plastic and other waste into pieces of art. Ideally, these pieces of art should meet one or more purposes for use, but non-functional pieces of art made of plastic waste or other found objects or waste are equally welcome! The idea is to create all such art forms with minimal or no additional carbon footprint or environmental damage at all. The movement aims not only at inspiring people to make, collect and use such art forms but importantly to draw everyone’s attention to the fact as to why such art is being created in the very first place; hence, be more thoughtful when deciding to use plastic or producing other non-recyclable waste. The project will culminate in country wise competitions for the best ‘Syn Art’ artists, who will be awarded with the Big Syn Art Awards.
