ARUCAD – BOCCHI Competition Participation Conditions

Beauty in the Breakage: From Broken to Beautiful

With this competition, BOCCHI and ARUCAD are collaborating to create an inspiring competition that will not only promote environmental awareness but also discover young talents.

We invite you to re-form these products, starting from the sinks/parts produced industrially by BOCCHI Company, which are damaged and unusable due to various reasons.

Project Overview:

The Sustainable Art Competition will serve as a platform to encourage artists, especially the younger generation, to explore sustainable art forms through the creative use of recycled materials. ARUCAD and BOCCHI will collaborate to create an inspiring competition that not only promotes environmental consciousness but also fosters the artistic expression of emerging talents. The winning artworks will be showcased at the prestigious KBIS Trade Show 2024, providing these young artists with a valuable opportunity to reach a broader audience and gain recognition for their work. Additionally, the gain generated through the exhibition will be donated to three non-profit organizations, one based in the United States, one in Turkey, and one international, further contributing to the promotion of sustainability and supporting meaningful causes around the world.
