Trash Academy

Trash Academy is a “collaboratory” between community members, artists, environmental activists, and young people from all across the city. Supported by Mural Arts’ Environmental Justice Department, Trash Academy inspires a wellspring of actions, believing that those who are most impacted by environmental challenges are the ones who must be at the forefront of crafting solutions. Rooted in the practice of collaboration and inclusivity, we develop, test, and share fun, interactive points of entry like games and teach-ins that posit a depth of knowledge and complicate the issue of trash.
