Our Mission

Trash is an often forgotten and ignored issue, too often hidden away from our views and conscience. However trash behavior is not an issue to forget. Trash behavior affects a range of concerns from environmental sustainability to public health. Our goal is to redefine alley spaces throughout baltimore and redefine trash behaviors by harnessing the transformative power of art. Through using art in our alley spaces we hope to promote awareness, provoke dialogue and ultimately inspire action .
