For the last few months, I have been engaged with this community project.
Until I get in touch with them, the WISE I know was Women in Science and Engineering – a charity that work to engage women into those two areas. However when I found out at the time of the difference, at first I was like “what?” but decided to give it a go. Afterall no one has the right to judge a thing, until they walk into the world.
After the small interview conducted in the Hidden Cafe, I then attended the meeting of Enactus UK, an organization who assisted students to develop projects that enriched society and themselves (skills rise). Within the meeting, my boss made us to work on how to make necklace out of recycling stuff in six minutes, gotta say the time-scale was quite disastrous. That’s when I realized I better take this project seriously, if to really understand its importance to the world.
The project in almost every Wednesday conduct art and craft sessions for women in all kinds of background, we borrowed the activity room from a charity call Together Women, which often enhanced the chances of women coming in and possibly participate in the sessions. Througout the sessions despite the trouble of remembering every name of the participants, it enabled me to have a glimpse over their lives; their perspectives and the things they do or say without consciousness.
I was lucky to have some very nice colleagues, many of them are very kind and pretty easy to get on with. They all excelled their excellence on their skills of tackling the hard parts in producing those upcycling artworks, which often helps me to overcome the hard parts. One of the things I would definitely miss when graduating, was that the research each member have to do (depend on whose turn to do research each week), I often found myself mesmerized by the beauty of up-cycling art – loads of amazing stuff being made, it might can save the world from constant pollution too!
One finally thing after you read this post…if you by any chance have facebook or twitter, I would be eternally grateful for you guys to like the page or follow twitter.
Thank you for reading.
p.s. you can always use the pages as your encyclopedia of upcycling art, we did quite an amount of experiments on upcycling. 🙂
