Through the integration of arts, science, and technology, the future of waste is now developed as new and alternative materials. The British Council Indonesia, together with Applied Arts Scotland, Playo, and CAST Foundation, collaborated on a new program: Altermatter.
Altermatter is a Material-Centered Design workshop held online between participants with experience in material development and product design from Indonesia and the UK. In the four-week to the six-week workshop, these participants have to develop everyday products using alternative materials. At the end of the programme, they get to present and showcase the 3D modeling concepts of their products.
