Port Moresby Nature Park has officially announced the second installment of the BSP Trash to Treasure Sculpture Festival which will be held from 3 July – 30 August.
Trukai Industries has come on board for the second time as an event sponsor for the BSP Trash to Treasure Sculpture Festival with a commitment of K5, 000.
The event will transform solid waste into aesthetically powerful larger than life sculptures to demonstrate the type and amount of trash that is created in Port Moresby and challenge the repurpose of items that would ordinarily be thrown away.
Visitors to this year’s event will be able to view the addition of 7 new sculptures and also get to participate in a self–directed family activity in the park.
The aim of the festival is to raise awareness of the growing issue of waste, in particular plastic pollution, to encourage the public to rethink their rubbish and how much each of us creates.
“Sustainability remains one of Trukai’s primary on-going corporate objectives, and we’re only too happy to provide support to great environmental protection awareness initiatives like the Sculpture Festival.”
“At one stage we were considering postponing the festival to 2021 due to the Covid-19 situation. But thanks to sponsors, like Trukai Industries, we were able to get it back on track in time for the launch date,” added, Nature Park CEO, Michelle McGeorge.
The BSP Trash to Treasure Sculpture Festival will be at the Nature Park with standard entry frees applying.
The Park is open every day with a number of additional COVID-19 safety measures in place, along with ensuring proper social distancing practices and promoting of washing of hands & importance of self-sanitization at public spaces.
