Open Creative Exhibition
Following last year’s success, Havering Council is hosting another 'Let’s Waste Less' Creative Exhibition
All ages are welcome to take part and this year’s theme has been widened with the title “Let’s Grow Together & Waste Less”. We encourage any creative response to this theme - it could be photos of your creative indoor garden, using toilet roll tubes as plant pots, or you could have made a sculpture/collage/any creative response out of items you would have otherwise thrown away.
The photos you submit do not have to be current. Please feel free to share work and projects you have previously created as well.
