One Last Call: Recycling mobile phones for Art + Climate = Change 2017

03 8344 1515

Until 14 May 2017

One Last Call is a participatory artwork by Anna Madeleine in collaboration with Dr Renee Beale that considers the environmental impact of manufacturing mobile phones, and a provocation to invent more sustainable ways to communicate. The event is presented by Carlton Connect Initiative’s LAB-14 Gallery, and is part of Climarte’s Art + Climate = Change 2017 – a festival of exhibitions and events harnessing the creative power of the arts to inform, engage and inspire action on climate change.

The project invites community members to submit their broken or abandoned mobile phones for recycling. Recycling phones instead of continuously producing new ones reduces the need to mine rare earth metals required for manufacturing, therefore reducing our environmental footprint and helping to save the habitats of gorillas in the Congo.
