GA: When Trash Becomes Treasure @ Virtual

It should come as no surprise that we have run out of space for our rubbish. Yet, if we can recategorize once-valuable materials as waste, we can also recategorize waste as a valuable new raw material.

As part of the Atlanta Design Festival, General Assembly welcomes writer Katie Treggiden to discuss a her perspective. In this session, Katie Treggiden shares innovative examples of designers and makers using waste as their primary resource. From a swing made out of human hair to furniture made from the by-products of shellfish and poultry production, Treggiden demonstrates our capacity for change.

Preparation:

  • A laptop or computer as well as a strong internet connection. Please make sure to download the Zoom app to ensure there are no connectivity issues.
  • Registrants will receive the Zoom link via email, in the confirmation email and in the 24-hour reminder email from General Assembly.
