Festivals, Team Events & Parties


Hire us to bring your event to life with a workshop, play, artwork or whatever you need.

Festival drop-in workshops and artist activations

Throughout the year, Reverse Garbage presents Creative Reuse drop-in workshops and artist activations at community events and festivals around Sydney and regional New South Wales. We can create a workshop tailored to your theme while always having the opportunity to educate the community about waste, reuse and recycling.

We get wonderful regular support from Randwick, Blacktown, North Sydney, Inner West, Central Coast and Wollongong councils and we would love to come to your next community event.

Get in touch!

RG Children’s Parties

Invite us to your birthday party and we’ll run an activity suitable for your theme and your guests’ age group.

We can bring our giant loose parts play kit or our reuse resources so guests can make their own party hats and decorations, create their own unique piece of  junk jewellery, tinker with tools, design a spaceship… or so much more.

We can come to you, or bring the party here to our makerspace where you can have all of the fun with none of the waste—or the clean up!  

I’d highly recommend this as a group activity, the nine 8 Year olds thoroughly enjoyed the experience, learnt how to cool their wrists like kangaroos and were super proud when showing their creations to their parents!
Thanks so much Eav!                                                                       Carole Nov 2020

Corporate events and Team building activities

Challenge your team to a zero waste hands on maker activity that will promote creative thinking and problem solving. It might be stasrt of year event to get new teams together or an end of year celebration of success and achievement. We have loads of ideas and you will know that you are doing something environmentally friendly, zero waste and sustainable. We can arrange the RSA if you need one too.

Zero Waste Christmas Decorations Workshop – ‘We all love the workshop so much Deanne is the teacher in the workshop and we got lots of fun even learnt a lot in this lesson. Best Christmas party ever!’

Artist activations

Our amazing super talented artists could design, develop and deliver an incredible community artwork or installation that involves many generations. We’ve recently been involved with Sydney Biennale, Sydney Fringe and Musica Viva’s Family Festival.  Get in touch.

…a big thank you… The education that Fiona & Sarah provides was amazing , engaging & so very important. All of my local Wagga friends were very impressed by Reverse Garbage being at our festival. I believe it has helped change people’s ideas about what to do with the waste we as a community are creating.
