Creative reuse center
The Scrap Exchange in Durham promotes environmental awareness and creativity through reuse of donated materials. The busy center boasts a store, green art gallery that showcases artists using reclaimed materials, and a Make and Take studio open to the public.
Ongoing events include workshops where trained staff integrate a teacher's classroom goals into an educational arts experience, helping kids transform clean industrial discards into science inventions, costumes for plays and toys for fun. The fee is $100 per hour for up to 15 children; $5 for each additional child. There are also professional development workshops for teachers seeking fresh ideas for projects.
