Mash-Up Bash is a public performance pageant. This new urban tradition enhances the importance of recycling and cultural diversity through a community celebration. Transforming parks and city squares with a visual spectacle made of music, movement, and “Maskostumes”, spectators enjoy works of art created from things discarded by one person and given new life through another’s imagination. With trash bag-boas and bottle-cap chain mail, Trash Mash-Up and the Mash-Up Bash creates creative connections and raises environmental awareness throughout our community as we connect our creative traditions to our collective future.
