Call to Artists! Trash Bash Art Festival Poster Design Contest – Submission deadline January 10, 2022

Each year of Trash Bash since 1999, a community member has designed the promotional poster. This year is no exception. Heart of Cartm is hosting a design contest with a $500 award going to the winning designer!

We believe that bringing Trash Bash Art Festival back in 2022 is the best way to weave the old and new communities together, to engage in the very important work of reimagining waste through creative reuse.

The Trash Bash Art Festival is May 12-15, 2022, and includes:
Rehomed Art Show at The Pine Grove,
Trash Art Gallery at The Hoffman Center, and
Trashion Show at an outdoor location TBD.

Submit your poster design by January 10th, 5pm to be considered!

One winner will be selected and will receive a $500 award. The winning artwork will be used to advertise the 2022 Trash Bash Art Festival throughout the Pacific Northwest. The winning poster will best represent this year’s theme “Transformation” and our mission to reimagine waste.
