Act-Belong-Commit Elevate arts


It’s not too soon to start planning for WOWA 2019! With the exciting theme of The Elements – from the Sea, Fire, Earth and Sky, take up the challenge and design, create and parade wearable art from reinvented, recycled materials.

In 2019 WOWA will be held at Midland Junction Arts Centre (MJAC). School students and adults are invited to participate in this celebration of creative thinking and environmental consciousness.

A year-long series of workshops will be held for both children and adults to customise second hand materials and upcycle clothing to reconnect with ‘lost skills’ and work against consumerism. Working with industry professionals including designers, makers and artists, workshops will explore fabric manipulation techniques, clothing deconstruction/reconstruction and sculptural forms all using recycled, upcycled and repurposed materials.

We are delighted to have Coordinator Sarah Zel Chescoe on board to steer this fabulous event, injecting her energy and vision in to workshops and artistic design.

Midland Junction Arts Centre will come alive on the evening of Saturday 9 November from 7 – 8.30pm for a performance throughout the historic building.
