ART-Cycling project aims to build a community of mixed-ability art cyclers of decorative arts, formed by artists coming from different backgrounds and with different social situations, with and without disabilities, but sharing the critical vision of upcycling and of the need of reducing environmental impact of art production. The project will constitute an opportunity for new business starting up. Artcyclers will create an art transnational cooperative, inclusive and environmentaly sustainable. The new business and community of artcyclers will live after the end of the project life, providing income to the art-cyclers. An online catalogue and shop for selling the works will be created together with the Art-cycled label of 3R+I_Art (Reused, Recycled, Reduced and Inclusive Art), ensuring the environmental and social responsibilty of the decorative art objects. A decalogue summarising the 3R+I criteria will be stablished for that purpose. The community will be open to new members. Any artist wanted to be part of the cooperative or community will need to follow and respects those commands and criteria in the production and creative process of the works.
