Founded by VIANT Commodities, the first VIART project – ViaRT Award, a Children Recycled Art Competition will be hosted in Nov 2020 in Singapore. The competition encourages Children to create aesthetic, innovative, and meaningful artworks by using daily recycled material, or to reflect their understanding of recycling. ViaRT Award supports children to deepen their knowledges of recycling, sustainable living, responsibility of usage of resources, and encourage them to develop their capabilities of seeking beauty from our daily waste.
More than just an art competition, ViaRT aims to be a growing movement that brings children, families, educators, and business together to make a positive impact on the sustainability in our community.
