TRASHed – Art of Recycling

Call to artists for TRASHed Coachella 2018

Celebrate 15 years of the Art of Recycling with Coachella + Global Inheritance.

Use all your skills and creativity to inspire millions to rethink trash and start recycling. Design the baddest art piece on two loves that loves recyclables. Your redesigned recycling bin will be on display both weekends for all to see and appreciate as you bask in the sun.

Submit your designs for this program, and you might be one of 50+ talented artists selected to redesign a 65-gallon recycling bin to grace the grounds of Coachella 2018. In return for your skills and talent, you’ll receive a VIP pass for the festival and other benefits.

Submitting Your Artwork

The Selection Process

This year’s TRASHed Coachella collection will consist of artwork by 45+ artists. All artists will be curated by our internal team, based on a number of variables and factors (including concept, past artwork, diversity of the collection as a whole, appropriateness for the festival and schools afterwards and more). There’s no limit on number of entries. Selected artists will be notified on or before February 14th.

All confirmed artists will receive a blank 65-gallon recycling bin and a 6” miniature recycling bin to reimagine and redesign.

California Schools & Museums

After Coachella, the TRASHed Coachella bins will be donated to schools and museums across California. If you’re an artist, make sure your designs are public appropriate!  If you’re looking to secure TRASHed recycling bins for your school or museum, please email
