Artists, schoolchildren, and community groups in Kent used their creativity to create art from rubbish which is on display in the High Street and Sunlight Community Centre until the start of next year.

Spurred into action by the closure of the town’s only art gallery in Gillingham Library, Lawlor Mottram started the project in protest, and received funding from the Arts Council, Friends of the Earth and other organisations. Most of the waste for the project was provided by waste transfer company Skipaway.
Skipaway managing director Mark Orsbourn said: “Tina managed to find all sorts of useful items that people had thrown out with their rubbish and the artists created some fabulous sculptures.”
