On Jan. 30 and Feb. 1, the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council holds information sessions for the inaugural Re:NEW Festival, a month-long, citywide event slated for the fall.

Re:NEW is billed as a “celebration of Creative Recycling, Transformation and Sustainability.” The programming will include “art exhibitions, expos and conventions, markets of artwork and goods made of upcycled materials, workshops, performances, talks and tours,” and more. The festival is geared for visual art, performing arts and music.

The festival will also serve as the North American premiere of Drap-Art, the International Festival of Recycling Art, held annually in Barcleona, Spain.

GPAC will soon issue calls for artists and volunteers, as well as vendor application forms.

In the meantime, it’s holding the free info sessions. The first is at 2 p.m. Sat., Jan. 30, at the Carnegie Museum of Art Theater, 4400 Forbes Ave., in Oakland. Register here.

The second is at 6 p.m. Mon., Feb. 1, at Neu Kirche Contemporary Art Center, at 1000 Madison Ave., on the North Side. Register here.

The festival is presented by GPAC, the Downtown Partnership, The Andy Warhol Museum, the Carnegie Museum of Art, Sustainable Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Resources Council, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, VisitPITTSBURGH, and the Allegheny Conference on Community Development.
