The Reuse Depot
Logo Design: Marisha Golas
The ReUse Depot is a collection of spaces for donating used but usable art & design materials and/or finding used items that will be useful to your creative practice. It’s a great opportunity for artists and designers to up-cycle, re-purpose or reuse materials that can inspire, help explore creativity, or reduce students financial burden while redirecting the material from landfills.
How it works:
Visit one of our locations and browse the selection. Take only as much as you need and will use. Donate any usable art supplies that you no longer need. Please note down the number of items you have taken or donated on the record of use sheet in the cabinet, so that we can understand the effect or success of this project.
Note on donations: We will accept any art & design supplies that are still in usable condition. We do not accept donations of books, clothing or hazardous materials.
The ReUse Depot is maintained by Learning Zone staff and has grown through collaborative partnerships between the Library’s Learning Zone, the Indigenous Visual Culture program (INVC), the Office for Diversity, Equity & Sustainability (ODESI), Facilities Planning & Management and Studio Management. The development of this project was also supported by the First Generations program, IT Services & AV Loans.
