Mission of plastic pollution awareness wrapped with music, arts, informal education, and workshops.
Creativity is becoming an important tool to ignite public awareness about the dramatic plastic issue. This is the core mission of “TrashStock Musik Artisk Plastik festival”, held 20 & 21 of June 2015 at Taman Baca Kesiman, Jalan Sedap Malam No.234 – Denpasar.
TrashStock is an event that features musicians, artists and organizations to unite a community that inspires and educates Indonesians about the plastic pollution to create change agents. This event is a collective of artists assisted by volunteers from Yayasan Act Global and students of Communication Studies from Udayana University.
With “Musik, Artistik, Plastik” as the theme, TrashStock Festival 2015 aims to inspire the young generations of Indonesia to resolve environmental issues, especially plastic waste, through positive messages of art, music and creative entrepreneurship.
TrashStock Festival 2015 will involve musical performances, arts exhibition, plasticology workshops, theater, trash education, eco books library and environmental photography competition.
Live music will be held on the first day of event. Robi “Navicula” and Nanoe Biroe will socialize environmental awareness through their performances. They will be assisted by other balinese musicians such as The Mangrooves, Rizal & Rasendriya, Rollfast,Deep Sea Explorers and more. All will donate their time to participate to TrashStock.

Informal education about plastic garbage management will be summarized in Nature Library and Plastikologi recycling workshops for art, inspired by Made Bayak.
