Refuse, Reduce, Recycle, Reuse, Regenerate

Every day cities of India are churning out mountains of plastic and nonbio-degradable waste. And yet, ours has been a culture of not wastinganything, of reusing every scrap. In small towns and villages, as wellas with experimenters around the country, this is still the norm.

In this swapathgami meeting, we hope to explore:

What kinds of creativeand useful things are we making (or can we make) out of waste?

How can we connect 'recycling' and 'upcycling' with art, architecture, music,farming, festivals, etc.?

How do we expand understandings around 'Refuse, Reduce, Recycle, Reuse, Regenerate'?

How can we make a healthylivelihood from waste?

How do we nurture 'zero waste zones' in ourfamilies and communities?

Bring your kabaad creations and join us at Karm Marg, Faridabad, Haryana, India, from 16th to 19th, 2005 for an interactive gathering.

Comments from RSJ Online:
Jonas Hellborg is a brilliant Swedish bassist who has played with the likes of John McLaughlin, Shawn Lane, Buckethead, Michael Shrieve, Kofi Baker among others.

Mattias IA Eklundh is Europe's answer to Steve Vai and in my humble opinion, the most innovative guitarist around. He currently fronts the band Freak Kitchen and has also released 2 absolutely crazy, guitar-centric solo albums. He's also guested on a number of Soilwork albums. The drummer is Zoltan Csorz (hungarian) who Jonas is pretty crazy about right now! Paco Sery and an ex-zappa drummer were also being considered by Jonas for this tour, finally its Zoltan.
