Imaginosity recently became involved with ReCreate; an exciting new project recently established just off The Long Mile Road in Dublin. We have been so impressed with Recreate and what they can offer our community that we just had to spread the word! Here, Kevin McLoughlin, ReCreate's Marketing/Membership Executive explains what goes on in ReCreate and how your organisation can benefit from the interesting work that they do.


ReCreate is a national social enterprise that takes end of line and surplus stock from businesses and reuses them as arts materials. Our warehouse is full to the brim with all types of fantastic materials such as paper, wool, plastics, fabric, tubing, foam and many other unusual and unexpected surprises from signature businesses such as Avoca, Smurfit Kappa, Bewleys Coffee, Universal Records and many more.

Distribution of the materials is on a membership basis which is at a nominal cost as Recreate are looking to drastically reduce the expenditure on arts materials for schools, community groups, preschools and crèches and representative organisations throughout the country. Additionally tonnes of materials will be diverted annually from landfill as well as saving businesses on their disposal costs, everybody wins! And now we are delighted to introduce our in-house art shop, in which our members can buy the products we have not been able to salvage.

We also have a workshop area where our members can visit our resident artist and learn how to transform regular business materials into stunning art pieces, plus we have regular themed workshops. ReCreate are thrilled to be teaming up with Imaginosity to host a week of events this Summer from 25th-31st of August on site in Imaginosity HQ, to host a number of workshops, using the materials from ReCreate to expand and explore the imaginations of the participants!
