Recipient group Fourth Arts Block will be hosting its Load OUT! event this weekend, which is free to MFTA recipient organizations. The Education Center at MFTA will also be there with an assortment of book repurposing exercises that are sure to be fun, creative, and green. Here is the blurb about the event:
Load OUT! A Creative Re-Use Event
November 5, 12pm-3:30pm / MFTA member preview 11am-12pm
Free curbside e-waste & clothing/textile collection from 11am – 3:30pm
Join FABnyc and Materials for the Arts (MFTA) as we bring together gently used materials of all sorts from arts organizations throughout the East Village/LES for a one-of-a-kind reuse and repurposing event. Take home all the costumes, props, and furniture you need for your next artistic endeavor. Try your hand at original art making with the supplies on site. The items you leave behind will be repurposed by MFTA and recycled by GrowNYC, WeRecycle, and the Department of Sanitation.
