Organization Information

Mission Statement

SERVING THE CHICAGO CREATIVE AND EDUCATIONAL COMMUNITIES WITH A PASSION FOR ART AND REUSE.

Description

The WasteShed seeks to provide Chicago
with an organized, affordable, and reliable resource for repurposed art, craft, and school materials, and with a dynamic center for activities pertaining to sustainability, art,
craft, education, and material culture. We connect Chicagoans who are interested in:

  • living more sustainably
  • seeking inspiration in unconventional materials
  • getting the most out of the resources
    they have on hand
  • or just making projects at a low cost.

While sustainability is the ultimate goal, creative reuse foregrounds practical, economical, and fun hands-on activities as points of entry into larger discussions about the things we own,
and the way we live.
