Waste matters – textile upcycling to shift perception on the obsolete

SUSTAINABLE INNOVATION
House Venture is a research institute for social innovation. The institute has set up a rehabilitation programme for persons who are outside the labour market. The participants process and upcycle the textile waste of the local community with the view to increase the financial independence of the institute by selling products. In her master’s project Zoé Nehlig examines a circular system where waste material enters into a viable and engaging production process.

BÆREDYGTIG INNOVATION
House Venture er et forskningsinstitut for social innovation, der har indledt et rehabiliteringsprogram for netop de personer, der står udenfor arbejdsmarkedet. Deltagere i ordningen har til opgave at bearbejde og ’upcycle’ lokalsamfundets tekstilaffald med det formål at øge instituttets økonomiske uafhængighed ved at sælge produkter. I sit afgangsprojekt undersøger Zoé Nehlig et cirkulært system, hvor affaldsmateriale kan indgå i en levedygtig og engagerende fremstillingsproces.
