This workshop was initiated by the Neighbourhood Youth Project, Castlebar and developed with Mayo ArtSquad, Castlebar. Myself and Merovee Guerin facilitated each workshop of which there were 5 in total, aproximately 1.5 hours, over 5 weeks.

The focus of the workshop was to design and construct 2 bins for the NYP centre. One for recycling and one for waste. The group had done some ideas work already and had arrived at the images of an Ipod and a comic strip as starting points for the first workshop. Using mindmapping and sketches the youths settled on an Iphone as a recycle bin, the ‘apps’ would represent all items that could be put in the bin. A comic strip was to be adapted for the rubbish bin with the theme of superheros fighting litterbugs.

The bins were constructed in the ArtSquad facilities with direct input from all youths involved, in the final design and image work.
