Several of our programs engage participants in questioning what is trash or treasure. Here, we not only engage participants with issues of environmental sustainability, but we use recycled materials to imagine new and innovative public art projects.

In these workshops, Visual Artist and Urban Planner, Anjuli Solanki leads participants on a community walk through public spaces, during which participants identify spaces where they feel safe and welcome, versus those where they may feel the opposite.

Participants then brainstorm ideas of how they could positively impact those space by installing a multitude of public art projects.

Either individually or in group format, participants begin to put their initial ideas into action by using household found objects to create sculptural representations of what their public art installations could look like, which are later shared with parents and the broader community.
