Keep Indianapolis Beautiful hosts unique event

8

Keep Indianapolis Beautiful…. even MORE beautiful than what it already is! On Friday, Nov. 4 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., Keep Indianapolis Beautiful will host Litter2 , an exhibition featuring @LitterofHighlandPark, the wildly popular Instagram feed brought to life by KIB Adopt-a-Block Captain Dan Remington; in a series of artistic images, pithy commentary & community engagement to encourage residents of Indianapolis to keep their neighborhoods litter free. A veritable litter-azzi, Remington melds activism and aesthetic to better his community and support KIB’s mission of helping people and nature thrive—all in a square shot.

5 Litter2 will not only highlight Remington’s images, but a community event devoted to selecting 2017’s Great Indy Cleanup focus areas will also take place. Attendees will have the chance to hear from three Indy neighborhoods as they make their pitch to be selected as a 2017 Great Indy Cleanup host community for April and October. At the end of the night a panel will select, along with input from the audience, locations for large-scale cleanup sites, and one neighborhood to receive a grant toward continuing community engagement.

Stroll the photo exhibition, learn about Indy’s awesome neighborhoods, sign-up to become an Adopt-A-Block Captain, and mingle over drinks as we select, together, where we can focus our efforts in 2017 to keep Indy beautiful!

WHEN: Friday, November 4 | 7 p.m. – 9 p.m.
WHERE: Keep Indianapolis Beautiful | 1029 E. Fletcher Ave., Indianapolis, IN 46203
COST: Free

6A citywide effort to beautify and strengthen our communities, the Great Indy Cleanup is a partnership between KIB and the City of Indianapolis. From April through October, residents can apply for a community cleanup that KIB will support with cleaning supplies, dumpsters and other resources. In April 2016, nearly 7,000 volunteers participated in over 170 community cleanups to collect 538 tons of litter. Since the April focus, an additional 3,000 volunteers have participated in KIB supported cleanups.
