Reclaiming Public Space
Streets Alive!, an initiative of Earth Island Institute, works to promote community engagement and reclamation and improvement of public space. One of our most popular projects is working with local artists to install sustainability themed artwork on utility boxes in Berkeley, Oakland, and San Leandro. We are beautifying the urban landscape by planting native and drought-tolerant plants, and working to fund mural projects in the East Bay.
By using art and nature as the platform for storytelling and communication, Streets Alive! turns neglected urban landscapes and infrastructure into vibrant art pieces and community gathering spaces. Find out how we can work in your community to make the Streets come alive!!
