TMU is looking for volunteers!!

Hello Trash Mash-Up Supporter!

Trash Mash-Up workshop season will be culminating this summer with Mash-Up Bashes and Carnaval SF events. TMU will transform city streets with a visual spectacle made of music, movement, and “Maskostumes”. Maskostumes are original masks and costumes inspired by traditions from around the world created from disposable materials. With plastic bag boas and bottle-cap chain mail, Trash Mash-Up builds creative connections and raises environmental awareness as a new urban tradition is fostered.

Trash Mash-Up will hosting a Mash-Up Bash at The California Public Utilities Environmental Awareness Day on Friday, April 3, 200 from 9:00am to 1:00pm at the CPUC Headquarters Courtyard, 505 Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94102 .

Trash Mash-Up is going to be featured that 31st Carnaval SF this year. The theme of Carnaval this year is "Roots of Revival, Seeds of Change".

We would love to have you join us! We are looking for adults and kids to be apart of the Trash Mash-Up contingency at all of these events. Please reply to this email if you would like to join in on the fun!

Looking forward to it all!
Bridget and Jessie McCracken
