A NEW NARRATIVE ABOUT PLASTIC
What comes to your mind when you hear the word PLASTIC?
You’re probably thinking about filthy beaches and wounded sea-turtles.
However - this is only a part of the story. Ridiculously innovative people around the world are turning this problem into an opportunity to transform lives, elevate others out of poverty, promote equality, dignity and more… all of that while saving our planet.
WHAT IS GATHER?
Gather is an upcoming production of a ‘music film’ and a social campaign by the NYADO collective, with the aim of offering a new narrative about plastic to people around the world.
Inspired by the story of the Plastic Bank, one of the most exciting global players that is reframing the relationship between humans and plastic.
Gather uses the universal languages of music and visual arts to bring some hope, invite people to join the global movement and take practical actions in stopping ocean plastic.
NYADO is a social production house connecting artists and changemakers from different countries and cultures. Together, we make 'music films’, inspired by the most revolutionary projects of our time.
Our debut music film is Mission To Earth, featuring Kenyan R&B singer Phy and solar-powered supercomputer and water purifier Watly - inspired by the vision of social entrepreneur Marco Attisani.
Mission To Earth was presented in world preview and the closing ceremony of the Global Festival of Action of the United Nations in Bonn, Germany.
ABOUT PLASTIC BANK
Plastic Bank fights ocean plastic and alleviates extreme poverty by empowering disenfranchised communities to turn pollution into wealth.
In developing nations, waste plastic can be exchanged at Plastic Bank branches for currency, goods & services, or even school tuition.
Diverted ocean-bound plastic is recycled into Social Plastic® and used by manufacturers to make eco-friendly products. We call this circular economy the Social Plastic Ecosystem.
We are inviting a unique group of individuals to become a part of this story. We believe that this message has the exceptional power to transform mindsets, drive action and redefine the way people think about, consume and treat plastic.
This is an opportunity for you to make a brave declaration and use your own power to do some good in the world. We are inviting you to join the creative process of Gather, participate in the production and lead the global plastic revolution.
