THOUGH MANDI COULDN’T ATTEND THIS LIVE EVENT, SHE SPRUNG TO LIFE IN A SECRET LOCATION. YOU CAN’T KEEP A GOOD PUPPET DOWN!
MANDI is the Festival’s spirit of transformation, change and freedom, eternal and supernatural.
MANDI uses music and movement to spread messages.
MANDI emerged from humans’ desire to reduce plastic pollution and reverse climate change.
MANDI’s mission is to free sea life from plastic pollution.
MANDI removes plastics from the oceans and waterways and recycles, reuses, and repurposes the plastics into new products.
MANDI sits in the clouds, freeing sea life from their cage of plastic in the ocean.
MANDI came to life in a secret location with the help of international performer Cid Shaha. Kinetika’s T100 Spring Clean public mandala was created at Grays Wharf using discarded plastic from the Thames collected by Steve Catchpole and the Thames Beachcombers.
The Thurrock Mandala above of reimagined symbols from Thurrock’s Coat of Arms coloured with photos of discarded Thames plastic radiated from the centre of the Grays Mandala. The Thurrock Mandala was designed by Hi Ching and community volunteers created the public mandala around it, facilitated by Kara Thompson.
