Project 2 - Upcycles
John Parker & Jodie Robertson
An Urban Dream Brokerage Project
117 George Street
Property Partner: Justin Stott
January ‒ February 2016
Upcycles was a project that worked alongside the Urban Dream Brokerage to provide a vintage bicycle library in central Dunedin, combined with an upcycle concept store to showcase creative ideas for reusing often discarded items.
The public were able to take a vintage bicycle for a cruise through the streets on Dunedin for up to a day for free – all they needed to do in return was produce a valid form of photo ID. People could also learn what upcycling is, how to get involved and see (and buy) some lovingly handcrafted upcycled items on show.
