An all-ages series of shoe up-cycling workshops and exhibition in which old and unwanted shoes are bought back to life by re-assembling and re-imagining them. Students are encouraged to create experimental object d'art, which will combine an unlikely juxtaposition of styles.
The exhibition is playfully inspired by the 1984 'Toxic Avenger' film. Using this theme and giving shoes destined for the landfill a second life, the artists hope to create discussion around sustainability and highlight wasteful consumer habits.
This project is a collaboration between Louise Clifton of Shoe School and Dunedin artist Rachel Blackburn (Murdabike, Steep Street).
