  • Skateboard Deck Recycling - Board Art and Stencil Workshop

    Yes 7-16s Accessibility Skateboarding has awesome potential to contribute to a greener, healthier city - enabling easy, flexible and active travel across the city. However, skateboards themselves can be quite wasteful and high cost, with regular skaters going through several maple plywood decks every year - which often end up in landfill, despite being perfectly usable for less experienced or frequent skateboarders. Local artist Kate Mason @k8_the_frog has been developing a stencil and spray painting method to create tailored board artwork whilst Skate Nottingham regularly receives donations of used skateboard decks. In this FREE session, aimed at 7 to 16 year olds and their families, together we'll strip down and clean up a range of used skate decks - and then Kate will work with you on your design ideas, using stencils, spray paints and marker pens, to customise a deck each - to take away and either hang on your wall or hit the streets. We'll be putting out a call for more donations of used/old skate decks over the next few weeks. Prior to the session, at Nottingham's unique, landmark 'skateboard friendly' space, Tram Line Spot, at the foot of the Nottingham Contemporary Art Gallery, we'll do a clean up and litter pick of the spot. For extra goodies and giveaways, why not come down and help, have a skate and then get creative. Funded by the Sport England small grant programme.

Help us out Keep an eye out for our travel surveys at events, you'll see them dotted around the festival site. All you have to do is scan the QR code with your phone camera and fill out the survey, we aim to make our festival as eco friendly as possible and we would love your help. Accessibility Our festival has been programmed with wheelchairs and different access needs in mind. In terms of getting here, if you need to use taxis or private vehicles we welcome you to our event, but please consider requesting or using an electric or hybrid vehicle if it is practical and affordable to do so. E-bikes and e-scooters Especially if charged with renewable electricity, these options are much better for the environment than petrol or diesel cars. Download the Lime app to find and book an e-bike, and the LINK app to hire an e-scooter in Nottingham. Please ride safely and be considerate. Public transport Nottingham has a wide range of public transport options including renewably powered trams from NET, two great bus companies in Nottingham City Transport and trentbarton (currently charging only £2 for a one-way ticket) and is well linked by rail. Walk, roll or ride If you’re close enough to town and able to get to the festival without using a car, there’s no healthier or lower emission way than by your own steam. Visit Transport Nottingham for a free cycle map, or pick one up from the Nottingham Tourism Information Centre. Why it matters Audience travel makes up around 80% of total emissions at a typical festival. Our data for 2022’s Hockley Hustle festival shows the equivalent of around 14.9 tonnes (about six mature trees worth) of carbon was emitted through travel alone. Getting here How you can help us be a nature positive festival Legacy Green Hustle C.I.C. has already planted over 2,500 trees to help make sure we’re improving natural habitats and sequestering carbon directly, and through the festival we’ll be helping restore and transform urban and green spaces to be more welcoming for nature and people. We aim to leave a lasting, community-led and nurtured green legacy that has the side benefit of helping offset the emissions we can’t avoid. Waste By minimising what we buy, avoiding plastic, and evaluating all our choices for the most local, low impact items we can afford, we’re hoping to keep waste both behind the scenes and on site as low as possible. Currently there is no local provision for collection of unmixed waste in the city centre, but we’re exploring the other options for handling this and better addressing our waste. Energy No fossil fuel burning is allowed on our Old Market Square site during festival show times, and food and refreshment outlets will be supplied by renewably generated electricity. We're also borrowing an electric van from Nottingham City Council for moving things around before and after the festival. Transport We’re committed to using bikes, electric vehicles, and public transport as far as possible in organising, promoting and delivering Green Hustle Festival. Some items like staging and infrastructure delivered by outside suppliers will unavoidably involve the use of some fossil fuel vehicles. To reduce this, we’re sourcing everything as locally and sustainability as possible to minimise any negative impacts. Measuring data We’re aiming to measure our emissions through data collection and analysis as far as we possibly can. We hope to reach a place where we can deliver a festival that ultimately does as much good for the environment, and the health and wellbeing of the local community, as possible. Learning Our team has undertaken extensive training in sustainability, ensuring a high level of understanding of our potential environmental impacts, and we recruit external academic support to make sure we’re abiding by the latest research and knowledge Actions we're taking Our commitments to sustainability at Green Hustle Festival What we're doing Our Vision We’re aiming to deliver an inclusive, eco-focussed festival that leaves Nottingham and its communities greener, healthier, and more connected. We’re working towards being able to define and deliver a meaningfully nature positive festival as soon as possible, and we’re going to share that working in the most accessible ways we can. Our Aims Guiding our sustainability actions are the principles of Learn , Act , and Share . We believe that by committing ourselves to understanding our environmental impact, acting to improve it and leave a lasting green legacy, and helping more people take positive action on climate change and nature, our festival and others can do more good than harm for the environment. Our Plan We hope to nail doing festivals whilst saving the planet properly, going beyond balancing our emissions, by 2028 in line with Nottingham’s ambition to be the UK’s first carbon neutral core city. Firstly we need to properly understand and benchmark this first large scale festival, but as soon as we can bring forward that date and share publicly how we’ll get there, we will. Our Partners Our fantastic supporters and partners that make Green Hustle Festival possible. Nottingham Business Improvement District are excited to support Green Hustle Festival in spreading the message that Nottingham is taking collective action on climate change. With its mix of city centre entertainment and experiences, the event is sure to inspire visitors as well as providing local businesses with industry-led workshops and practical ways to make positive changes.

  • Thingamabobas

    Yes No Accessibility Makers of Imaginary Worlds explored found objects, reused old forgotten things - toys, kitchen utensils and clock parts to design Thingamabobas. The installation space is a place of wonder and draws on the absurdities of British artists’ Heath Robinson and Rowland Emett’s contraptions, Calder’s Circus (1930’s), automatas, object theatre, puppetry and circus acts. These artificial life forms have a whimsical personality with embedded artificial intelligence (AI) and capabilities for touchless interaction that responds to the audience's movements. The sculptures aesthetics and movements will reference traditional circus acts; clowns, acrobats, trapeze acts, tightrope walkers, jugglers, contortionists, trampolinists and unicyclists.
