Open during College hours

In March 2015 the Conscientious Communicators Research Hub worked with a group of LCC BA students to create the Museum of Reinvention. The Museum is a large wheelable cabinet made from waste materials, containing and showcasing upcycled and reinvented creative objects. Students were invited to create objects from reclaimed and upcycled materials, to make exhibits to act as inspirational examples, teaching tools and unexpected ‘creative curiosities’. Part of the Waste Off Challenge, the exhibits had to utilize non-hazardous waste materials collected in LCC, be useful, engaging and appropriate, be participatory and to continue to be useful after the Challenge finishes, and to be fully recyclable.

The cabinets were made by Romain Meunier and Ben O’Hare. Project collaborator Jan Hendzel. Sign-writing by Corin Kennington and Sean Messin.
