Street Art for Greener Cities
Outdoor Workshop

Valerie Gwinner
Kenya


TNOC’s Nature of Graffiti website collects images of nature-themed street art from around the world. What can we do with this unique collection to promote advocacy, community, and green cities? We will visit the nearby and graffiti-rich Butte aux Cailles neighborhood and talk about the power of street art to create dialog, action, and awareness and discuss potential collaborations (e.g., writing, dance, photography, video, contest, etc…)
