Message in a Bottle demonstrates the real consequences of plastics making their way into our waterways and ultimately damaging our beautiful aquatic ecosystems. Focussing on the life of the native Eastern Blue Groper as an example, the light-art installation aims to inspire the audience to stop and reflect on the issue, and consider their impact and the correct disposal of waste, both at the festival and in their daily lives.

The artwork has been handcrafted from upcycled plastics, collected through collaboration with local cafes, government organisations and many generous volunteers.

This project is a NSW EPA Waste Less, Recycle More Initiative funded from the Waste Levy.  Paper Moose is a Creative Agency that thinks and acts differently, bringing big ideas - and the making of them - under one roof to offer silky smooth end-to-end creative solutions.

Through the power of entertainment and the arts, Paper Moose hopes to create meaningful conversations that strike a chord with real people, and in doing so, provide a tangible social benefit that incites real change.
