A symposium that explores the environmental, cultural, economic and social values of resourcefulness in relation to the 'reduce and reuse' priorities for zero waste.

This event relates to the work of: waste minimisation leaders in local and central government; academics in design, craft, reuse & waste-related sciences; student/graduate designers & architects; community resource recovery organisations; resourceful design, craft & architecture practitioners; occupational therapists with interest in therapeutic value of resource recovery; business leaders in waste minimisation; those involved with wellbeing economics, community strengthening, local resourcefulness, and the second-hand goods markets.

This event is presented by Rekindle and Objectspace as part of FESTA 2016.

FESTA is a vibrant weekend festival celebrating the unique urban environment of Christchurch and the creative urban regeneration that has emerged from it.

The theme for FESTA 2016 is ‘We Have the Means’, which focuses on citizen-initiated urban regeneration and sustainability through the reuse of waste materials in design. The ‘means’ we are celebrating includes both the people of Christchurch and visitors to the city, who care about the city’s development and flourishing, and the materials that we are able to repurpose and divert from landfill, which a=is then used to create functioning beautiful and interesting objects for Christchurch.

Our headline event, Lean Means – a spectacular temporary city made from ‘waste’ materials, is set to attract thousands and is live for one night only on Saturday 22 October (rain date 23 October).
