Jornada de Limpieza at Bajos de Haina Beach & Urban Art Mural Promoting the Conservation of Marine Biodiversity

Place: Bajos de Haina beach, Santo Domingo
Date: Thursday September 10
Time: 2PM – 6PM

Ocean trash ranks as one of the most serious pollution problems of our time. Much more than an eyesore, trash in the water and on the shore affects the health of people, wildlife and economies. Join GFDDD/Funglode for an afternoon beach cleanup open to all members of the public and co-sponsored by the Ministry of the Environment, and help create a world of trash free seas!

mural_transitandoTransitando. A collective of Dominican artists and designers who define themselves as a pro-art project with their main goal being to promote artistic creation in its various expressions that reach out to every citizen. The group is made up of dancers, visual artists, theater people, musicians and graphic designers who, with every activity they undertake, they continue adding branches.

Several years ago, they began to organize parades, urban theater and artistic exhibitions, all open to the public on the streets of the Dominican Republic. They are currently promoting an initiative to brighten up and fill the country’s walls with life.

Through their mobile murals and urban works of art being done on abandoned utility posts and unused walls, in addition to musical events and plays, the project is giving a new tone and multiple nuances to the Dominican Republic. Their intention is also to promote positive and motivational messages, inspiring Dominicans to see beyond the obvious and fight for their dreams.

As part of the fifth edition of the Dominican Republic Environmental Film Festival (DREFF), Transitando is moving to the fishing community of Bajos de Haina to paint a mural promoting the country’s marine biodiversity.
