TECHO-FIU working with Wynwood’s Art Walk to raise awareness on global poverty

Wynwood – arguably Miami’s most artsy district – hosts its Art Walk every second Saturday of each month. The Art Walk brings together enthusiasts and people looking to go home with a memorable night. Artists open their studios and galleries until the late hours of the night, but the art doesn’t end there; TECHO-FIU is adding art and humanitarianism to the event.

Raising awareness about the global poverty crisis, the University organization is a branch of TECHO, an international non-profit organization that focuses on relief in the slums of Latin America and the Caribbean.

At the Art Walk they will feature hands-on painting onto giant TECHO letters, allowing Art Walk goers to express thoughts and feelings on the poverty issue.
