Description

Artist Kris Hall and Organizer Elizabeth McLellen discussed the intersection of art and activism, and presented on the use of medical blue wrap as a medium to raise awareness and funding for Partners for World Health. The act of turning trash into treasure is not a new idea, but in this case the medium and the message raise awareness for everything from recycling to the state of health care in third world countries.
