My friend Tracy pays a lot more attention to the cool happenings going on in Yangon than I do, and thanks to that she introduced me to YGN WALLS.
YGN WALLS is a group of artists that help to clean up the alleys of Yangon, while at the same time creating an open-air gallery for all to enjoy. Many of these alleys, which stand between two residential buildings, were used as trash dumps and were not accessible. YGN WALLS has cleaned up the trash, built simple play structures for kids, and painted the walls with such colorful and fun art. They have really given life to the alleys! I can’t wait to go explore some more!
