Civic Art Lab 2019: Closing the Loop (free)

“Civic Art Lab 2019 is the fifth iteration of our design and sustainability lab. Workshops, events, and exhibitions lead investigations into diverse themes such as: climate change and climate resilience, creative re-use, urban agriculture, sustainable architecture, environmental justice, and more.

Our focus for 2019 explores closed-loop systems through the intersection of design, science, and the visual arts. What is a closed loop system? Essentially, the waste or byproduct of one process or product is used in making another product. In a sustainable and circular system we strive to design waste out of systems, products that can be “made to be made again”, also powering systems with renewable energy (Ellen MacArthur Foundation, 2017 )!”
