The impetus behind the ReCrearte Program arose from the interest sparked among students who participated in the Recycled Art Workshop conducted by Bertha Santana at the II DREFF in 2012. The ReCrearte Program aims to raise awareness of the 3Rs of solid waste management: reduce, reuse, recycle. The workshops also emphasize and demonstrate how recycling waste into art can empower individuals and communities alike.

Through this brand new program, GFDD hopes to engage youth groups, educators and women’s associations into reformulating the way they think about trash and raise awareness of the plastic pollution problem.

To be a leading program in artistic creativity using recycled materials for practical and decorative uses.

Enhance the work of the DREFF (GFDD / FUNGLODE) by complementing the visual and sound experience of the films through practical and manual activities to achieve a holistic experience that strengthens the inclusive spirit of the DREFF.
