The launch of the  ‘Say No to Single Use Plastic’ Art Installation at  SeaLife Sanctuary, Manly, was attended by respresentatives from Northern Beaches Council, Manly Art Gallery, SeaLife Sanctuary, artist Cherry Corr,  MEC and  students from Montessori Farmhouse School.

The exhibition, which is part of the Northern Beaches Art Festival, is a colourful collectio of sea and land animals made out of plastic and other debris, along with the thoughts of the indiividual young artists. 

This is the first time the council has run this installation and the thought and creativity that have gone into the artworks is astounding.

The Video Conference ‘Say No to single Use Plastics’ Project was a great collaboration between St John’s Primary Dubbo and Kulnura Public School in NSW and Dunolly Primary School in Victoria and  Montessori Farmhouse Primary at North Head Manly.  Over 400 pupils took part in the four week program which was a fantastic result.

The installation will be on display at  SeaLife Sanctuary in Manly, until 11th October.
