Vivid Sydney 'in conversation with Veena' event

On 18 June 2022, Veena will feature in a special event for Vivid Sydney to explore sustainability issues and 'waste to product' innovations needed to help create a circular economy and reduce emissions.

The 'in conversation' event will be hosted by Dumbo Feather publication’s Nathan Scolaro at the Vivid Ideas Exchange Ideas at the UTS Great Hall and will traverse various ways to create more sustainable communities and treat waste as a resource for manufacturing and new products.
