  • Project Gallery: Zero | SCENE

    Zero Dollar Make-Over ​ A homeless man with just a garbage bag of clothes was allocated a room at Ainslie Village Canberra's largest housing estate. He was arriving the next morning and his room was bare. ​ After a hunt around the estate some old tins pf paint & brushes were found and some abandoned electrical items, furniture and flooring. Artwork was found in a vacant office. ​ Not only was the make-over completed single handed, under 5 hours with just an old shopping trolley to move items, but 4 living areas were created in this 4m x 4m space. The table catches the morning sun and is a perfect way to start the day. In the evening a dining chair can be turned and used as a night stand. before & after slider - Cooking and Dining Areas before & after slider - Sleeping and Lounge Areas This configuration was intentional to enable watching TV from bed. The sofa is the first thing you see when you come in the door. A good place for visitors. ​ ​ ​ return to Project Gallery ​ ​ ​

TUESDAY LIDS4KIDS rescues plastic lids from landfill and repurposes them into products to benefit kids. Recently founder Tim Miller won Australian Hero Award in November 2020. LILY Being able to visit Lids4Kids was a wonderful experience and learning about what they do made me realise that there are many charities and programs fighting the war on waste. SIENNA Tim from Lids4Kids was doing an amazing job rescuing and recycling plastic lids, all done inside his own home. I learnt that lids are too small to be recycled and are actually sent to landfill if put in the yellow bin, and what Tim’s charity does to prevent this.

    THIS PAGE R.E.D.U.C.E and EDUCATION PROGRAMS Everyone Is Creative ​ A commonly believed myth is creativity is something only some people have. Creativity is also known as problem solving. ​ People often label themselves as not being creative if they don't get things right straight away or if they've been told it's not a skill they have. ​ Creativity isn't art. Creativity is the same mental process as decision making and planning. Some people can open a bare cupboard and create a meal. Other people settle for toast. But with a bit of practise and experimentation anyone could pull a dish together. That's creativity. ​ Examples and guidance makes problem solving (creativity) easier. ​ ​ R.E.D.U.C.E is a simple guide of practical creativity with thing that are discarded. Demonstrating what we consider rubbish is in fact free, viable design materials. ​ Check out the introduction to the REDUCE program and get in Contact if you're interested in more info. ​ ​ ​ ​

  • Investigation | SCENE

    ​ The condition of where we work, live and visit directly influence our state of mind. ​ ​ Australians enjoy one of the best health and welfare systems in the world, along with the freedom to pursue all walks of life. ​ Health and Welfare ​ Everyone has access a broad range of services; full spectrum of free health care, study now with deferred fees, housing, food, income and municipal amenities. Plus public spaces, parks, recreational activities and events. Everything we need to create a lifestyle of our choosing, for free and at our fingertips . ​ Environmental Obstacles ​ Even with all these benefits and opportunities, if living conditions are bleak , positive thoughts and experiences are quickly diminished. Personal progress can be greatly hindered. ​ For organisations a run-down workplace can affect motivation and mood. For visiting clients in need, dreary premises may reinforce their diminished situation . ​ A welcoming environment promotes a positive attitude. One of SCENE’s pursuits is to gather data from projects and programs to demonstrate designed & decorated spaces contribute to overall wellbeing and play valuable role in a complete health & welfare system. Improved spaces allows individuals to relax more, think clearer and set goals. For community groups, welcoming, inspirational premises enrich the staff and inspire visitors. ​ ​ ​ Get in Contact if your interested in assisting with developing this study. ​ ​

Currently, it is unknown how many bottle caps actually enter our oceans and wash up on shore. Plastic bottle caps are made of hard plastics and degrade very slowly. Plastic bottle caps are among the top 5 ocean trash items that are deadly for sea life.” more...
