The Fuji Xerox Sustainable Art Award is sponsored by Fuji Xerox Australia.
Fuji Xerox Australia has a deep commitment to sustainability and this innovative award has been designed to highlight and encourage artists – from both visual and performance endeavours – working with recycled and recyclable materials.
Last year’s award was presented to composer and puppeteer, Marianne Mettes. Marianne will produce a series of shows for children involving marionette (string) puppets created from toilet rolls. Marianne’s characters live in a world created from recycled materials, as they experience the struggles of ‘living in a world of rubbish’. Their story uses minimal words and is mainly told through Marianne’s original music, and the dance, gestures and movements of the puppets.
This award may be chosen from applications for the CAPO Fellowship.
Eligibility: Open to practising artists resident in Canberra and the region only, working with recycled materials.
