Telling the stories of Circular Casey through art

In May 2023, the City of Casey introduced the "Art for Impact" Portrait Competition.

Zainab Hasani, the competition's winner, created a series of evocative portraits highlighting "sustainability heroes" – individuals and businesses central to the Circular Casey initiatives that have significantly contributed to environmental improvement over the last year.

These narratives strive to motivate continued commitment and action towards sustainability in Casey. An exhibition held at Bunjil Place in November 2023 featured these powerful stories from participants of the Circular Economy Living Lab, encouraging attendees to incorporate circular economy principles into their daily lives.

You can also access the following downloads:

  • Artist interviews: discover the stories behind the portraits, learn more about the exhibition, and explore the artist's journey,
  • Art glossary: gain a deeper understanding of the themes represented in the artwork.
