“The Paper Cup Project started with one question: how can we help Perth artists, designers, thinkers and doers connect with the local community?”
We have all seen the beautiful art on some takeaway paper coffee cups, but how often do we think about who creates the art or what benefit that display has on the local community? Online platforms are a useful tool to share organisational messages and services, but it limits the audience to the technically savvy and the aware consumer. It’s also difficult for entrepreneurs and small businesses to break into the online market, particularly as trends change so rapidly.
The Paper Cup Project allows your regular morning coffee to become an opportunity to engage with the talent and achievements around you. This particular Issue 04 promotes biscuit enthusiast Knutsford Gourmet, The Holy Bagel Company, edgy sketcher Peche, and the Fiona Wood Foundation.
The best part? This Issue supports the Fiona Wood Foundation with donations. For every original picture you take with your Issue 04 cup and post to Instagram, tag #papercupproject and #fionawoodfoundation and Paper Cup Project will donate $1 to the Fiona Wood Foundation.
So, get snapping! The cafes currently stocking Issue 04 cups are:
+ Nexus Coffee
+ Panache Cafe
+ Metro Bar and Bistro
+ Sprout Hub Alkimos Beach
+ Marmalade Cafe
