What is Polymers in Action?

Polymers in Action began as an MFA thesis investigation by Vicki Clough into artistic practices that use recycled materials as their main medium. She wanted to look into how practical, fun initiatives were helping to connect people to issues of environmental stewardship through art making and crafts within an informal and/or educational setting. This quickly expanded to become an ongoing project that engages local artists and community members in the removal of waste plastic from the waste stream as a way of encouraging environmental literacy.

As more people become involved, this site will incorporate their artwork and projects and open up the platform to more varied voices and approaches.
