As part of the Center-funded project RAIR: Live at the Dump, RAIR (Recycled Artist in Residency) will screen the post-apocalyptic action adventure movie Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome at its outdoor recycling facility in Northeast Philadelphia. Games, a photo booth, and t-shirt printing will be available on the lawn before the film screening.
Live at the Dump is an interactive, site-specific program that utilizes a series of films, performances, and discussions to increase public awareness of the waste stream and the role of art in shaping social and environmental consciousness.
