Tyre art all part of Crush Festival
GOT an idea for turning old tyres into sculptures?
Sugarland Shoppingtown and the Crush Festival invite not-for-profit organisations and schools to enter the Sugarland Recycled Tyre Sculpture Project's competition.
Made from old karting or car tyres, the sculptures will be on display at Sugarland with the public to vote on which one they like the best.
"The idea for this project came through a discussion with a member of the Bundaberg Karting Club mentioning the growing pile of tyres at their venue. We saw some pictures of creative ways to turn the basic tyre form into art and thought it would be an interesting project for many community organisations and school groups to have some fun and get involved," Director Creative Regions Shelley Pisani said.
The winning entry will receive $500 voucher from Sugarland Shoppingtown.
All entries will be auctioned onsite by local auctioneer Robert Ephraims at Sugarland Shoppingtown at 10am, October 24.
Money raised at auction will go back to the school/organisation that submitted the entry.
Tyres are available free of charge from the Bundaberg Karting Club by phoning Wendy on 0458199650 or from Bundaberg Regional Council by phoning Ainsley on 0488 1974 00.
