Dear all, we are super-excited about the upcoming Wintersession! – Why? We are getting serious in creating our own Plastic Recycling Factory. This project will be part of the Precious Plastic initiative started earlier by Dave Hakkens (see video), a Dutch designer who turns wasted plastics into a global network of serious recyclers. If you want to join the team and start your own first plastic experiments – then read more here and apply at make(at)burg-halle(dot)de
