THE RECYCLE CHALLENGE for Whose magazine? A Youth Publication receives front from Chic Nouvelle Model & Talent

May 2021 to April 23, 2022 

A grant from Ya' Heard Me & TANDEM ED Grant was awarded to CHIC NOUVELLE MODEL and forwarded to WHOSE MAGAZINE? THE RECYCLE CHALLENGE. The global initiative asks artists, students, and everyday people to complete one action or task, or product that produces an art piece of trash. Trash can be paper, plastic, and anything at your home or office that you will recycle or repurpose. The finished items such as wearable paper dresses, hats and crowns reduced trash destined for landfills. Reducing each artist's carbon footprint.
