THE RECYCLE CHALLENGE

A global initiative that asks artists, students, and everyday people to complete one action, or product that is crafted of trash. Trash can be paper, plastic, and anything at your home or office that you will recycle or repurpose. The finished item must reduce trash or your carbon footprint.

WHOSE MAGAZINE? New Orleans

2018 to present (pilot program)

The first of Whose Magazine aka Literacy Project International began in 1998 in Commerce City, Colorado. The 11x17 large-format publication appeared every three years in a stylish product, written and produced mainly by youth. The New Orleans issue is different, it includes collaborations of youth, parents, and adults. From its workshop enrichment programming, all material is edited and presented in the final magazine. It showcases a literal roadmap of where and how participants have collected wisdom and self-renewed confidence.

ARTIST (DANCER/RECYCLE)

2016 to present

Moved to New Orleans from Brooklyn, NY.

The move to New Orleans allowed me to dream about paper hand fans and hats. Enjoying myself dancing and expanding what's possible into new art forms.
