Anna Timm-Bottos is in her element: she's packed the EV Junction with people who are working away at tables overflowing with craft materials.
“You are in the middle of Reuse: a day of making,” she says, "this is the first event put on by the CUCCR."
This day of making held by the Concordia University Centre for Creative Reuse (CUCCR) held on December 6th, was organized to gain momentum for the Centre’s opening March 15, 2017.
“We actually pronounce it ‘sucker’,” she says craftily.
The project was created by Timm-Bottos, a masters student in art education, in partnership with Kathleen Vaughan, an associate professor in the Department of Art Education and Faisal Shennib from Environmental Health and Safety. They received $45000 in funding from the Dean of Students Big Hairy Ideas competition last Spring.
