Event Details

Happy Mother’s Day, Earth. On Saturday May 10, 2014, do-gooders around San Francisco will be venturing out to help Mama Earth with the Fourth Annual Big Mama’s Spring Cleaning, then create an upcycled art project, and enjoy some snacks and treats on Saturday, May 10, 2014.

In 2014, San Francisco is kicking it up a notch, with a flash-mob MOOP Troop. MOOP is a Burning Man term and stands for Matter Out Of Place.

Dress up: 2014 theme is Super Heroes. Meet at [freespace] at 12 pm, grab a bag, a route, and a pair of gloves (or bring your own), then head out into the city. You can join for as long as you want; every little bit helps.

Creative Challenges (bring your photo-takers)
(1) Matter MOST out of place
(2) Extreme MOOPing
(3) Best MOOP Moment
(4) Original Art, made of MOOP

When you return from your outings, you’ll sort through your findings and create an up-cycled art piece together. Then wash your hands and enjoy some drinks and treats.

About Big Mama
Inspired by the ethos of Burning Man, a leave-no-trace event, we set out and De-MOOP the world. MOOP stands for Matter Out Of Place, and the idea is simple: if you see something on the ground that doesn’t belong, pick it up. You may argue that it’s not YOUR gum wrapper/coffee cup/flyer that is littering the ground, but it is YOUR home. It’s all of our home, and if each of us took a moment or two to pick up after our messy brothers and sisters, our home would feel more clean and our Mama more cared for.

Can’t Come? No worries, you can still participate.
This is a global event. Wherever you are on Saturday, just keep your eyes open and your grabbin’ hands ready. With every scrap you gather, you are sharing a positive intention with people across the world. It’s pretty neat. Questions? Email holler@artsdiaspora.com
