The name art was a special initiative.  The kids names will be turned into stickers.  The stickers will go on a top-nationally-ranked student’s snowboard.  He’ll take photos and maybe videos.  We’ll post all the media in the Spring 2018 Global Gallery, with a list of represented countries.

Bal Kendra School, Kathmandu

Vajra Academy, Kathmandu

WINNERS: of the Winter 2018 Global Gallery “Best in Show” award. 
In order to win this award, groups must submit projects that specifically show the use of art for outreach or that are in-line with our “Shared Themes.”


Vajra Academy, in Kathmandu, Nepal, is the first eco-school of its kind.  The curriculum and ethos of the school prioritizes the study of ecology and sustainable practices.  Vice-principal, Udit Badra, developed “Tie-the-Trash,” an initiative combining community outreach, installation and performance art, and environmental studies.  Children at Vajra Academy collect and tie the plastic waste they find in their environment, thereby creating a plastic rope. Eventually, when their rope extends 27.8 kilometers (17.3 miles), all the children involved will pull the rope all the way around Ring Road, which encircles Kathmandu, thereby raising awareness about protecting the earth.

Over several years, the US based Greenheart group, has made trips to Tie-the-Trash with Vajra Academy.  These photos are from their most recent trip in November 2017, during which, Greenheart founder, James Dean Conklin, invited the Vajra School and the Bal Kendra School, both of Kathmandu, Nepal, to join Big Picture Foundation.  Perhaps the example set by the Vajra School will inspire our other Big Picture schools to also Tie-the-Trash!

  • The Greenheart group includes Big Picture Foundation volunteer and patron, Julie Corbalis, who connected our groups.
