Launched in 2013, the Green MOAH Initiative utilizes art and environmental education as a creative catalyst for leading greener, more sustainable lives. Project topics include recycled art, urban farming and gardening, sustainable design, water harvesting, and renewable energy, such as wind and solar power. To date, the Green MOAH Initiative has reached more than 15,000 underserved youth in the Antelope Valley.
The Initiative showcases how art functions as a stimulant in communities for living cleaner lives in the Antelope Valley. This is MOAH’s first annual public outreach and community engagement initiative to welcome the schools, community groups, families and individuals in our unique community to join us in co-creating a greener, brighter future. MOAH will develop and launch this exciting program on a quarterly basis with community based “green art” workshops and corresponding exhibitions that are formulated to increase environmental awareness through creativity and art making.
