We believe our community will be stronger and more resilient when we work together than if we try to do it alone. Sponsored by Future Kind's R.E.N.O. program, the FLUID Project catalyzes collaboration and raises awareness about plastic, water, and community through participatory art. We demonstrate the circularity potential of plastic by turning the art and public plastic donations into benches for community partners, public parks, or places in need.
The art installation was created by Human Innerface. Community participation and collaboration is coordinated by Ecolution Studio. Several community collaborators have joined to help provide educational resources and support, enhancing the educational components of the FLUID installation.
Raising community awareness through art is the first step, the FLUID project brings that awareness into collaborative action through continued coordination and community development.
In partnership, we have launched a community wide plastic film collection. The plastic will be up-cycled by NexTrex to create benches for community locations and demonstrate new ways to think about our waste.
We have public drop locations across Reno. If you are interested in hosting a collection site or volunteering to help please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. The project has been a huge success in our community, in order to scale we are currently in need of grants, financial donations, and support with large transports of plastic once a month to Fernley.
Current collection sites for public plastic drops:
Support impact art and sustainable community coordination to upcycle plastic by donating funds the Future Kind FLUID project and help keep plastic out of our watershed.
