Circular Arts Network
Some friends in Scotland recently got in touch with a project they’d like to roll out UK-wide. Called CAN (Circular Arts Network), it’s a new online platform for redistributing spare, used or surplus materials, exchanging skills/labour and coordinating transport.
It’s a timely opportunity to generate less waste and save much needed funds. You can explore the site here: https://www.canarts.org.uk
The way it was communicated to me is ‘a bit like Gumtree crossed with Freecycle but for the arts community’. I’ve shared it fairly widely, but if this is the first time you’ve seen it then you should take a look. Obviously it will be most useful when more people in one specific area contribute to it…I’ve just added the first listing from NI, should anyone be in the market for 5l of free grey floor paint!
