Special Guest: Eugene KHLEBNIKOV (Founder of Precious Plastic Ukraine) Free walk-in Ukraine is 7,655 km away from Hong Kong. Most Ukrainians do not live a rich material life, but some are finding great value in what is discarded. Supported by the MaD Festival Exchange+Incubation Scheme for Creative Practitioners, home-grown upcyclist Gaau1 Up has previously embarked on an exchange with Precious Plastics Ukraine. Their founder, Eugene KHLEBNIKOV, will join our climactic Assembly and take part in the Exchange session at Tai Kwun. Before that, Gaau1 Up will bring Eugene to Waste-No-Mall @ Yuen Long. It will be our local practitioner's turn to show the foreign guest how the community recycling campaigns take place in Hong Kong. Eugene will share his experience back in his hometown as well, with a showcase of upcycled plastic toys and other products.
