ViaRT Award 2021: A Waste Beyond
Did you know that in 2019 alone, Singaporeans discarded around 200,000 tonnes of disposables and generated 744,000 tonnes of food waste! The amount of food waste is equivalent to 2 bowls of rice per person per day. At the current rate of our waste disposal, our only landfill, Semakau Landfill, will be fully filled by 2035!
This year, in collaboration with National Environment Agency's (NEA) “Say YES to Waste Less” campaign, ViaRT is bringing you the second edition of our annual art competition, titled ‘A Waste Beyond’. Food waste and single-use items are generated daily, but with your effort and creativity, we can encourage less wastage and help extend the lifespan of Semakau Landfill.
ViaRT’s art competition is a platform to showcase your unique interpretation of the waste problem in Singapore and advocate good practices to reduce food waste and disposables. Choose one type of waste as a key element in your artwork. Show us what you think it takes to reduce a city’s worth of food & disposable waste. Create an artwork depicting the beauty of your zero waste city and show the world your wonderland!
