The University of Technology Sydney (UTS) has an ongoing project with communities and organisations Magno Design (Temangung) and Sapu Upcycle Collective (Salatiga) in Indonesia. This exhibition is curated by Alexandra Crosby (UTS). The project brings together Indonesian and Australian designers, design writers, design teachers and design thinkers to work on sustainable futures. The exhibition features designs that upcycle and reuse and also celebrate Indonesian culture and creativity. Also included are banners created by artists and designers for Festival Mata Air 2016 (Indonesia) with a focus on saving important waterways. During 2016, the Peacock Gallery has had a focus on ‘gardens’ and this exhibition recalls the remediation of the area along the Duck River that had become an industrial wasteland and a rubbish tip by the 1960s, and that became the Auburn Botanic Gardens in the 1970s. The public program at the gallery also includes activities in collaboration with Council’s Sustainability team during National Recycling Week (7-13 November).
