Nine artists and art teams in Bali were challenged to create waste-free art using a unique medium – a coconut made from upcycled plastic bottle caps and local plaster. The final pieces have been on display in ZIN Cafe since Dec. 20, and will be auctioned off this Friday. The proceeds will go to Ecstatic Ocean Initiative, an organization working to save the ocean from plastic pollution, and the artists themselves. If you’re keen on starting off your 2020 supporting the arts and environment, this is one way to do it.
Friday, Jan 3 from 6.30pm to 8.30pm at ZIN Cafe. Free and open invite. For more information about the event, check out their Facebook event page.
