Pimp my Carroça
This description of Thiago Ackel Mundano's work was prepared when Thiago Ackel Mundano was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2015.
Thiago Mundano created Pimp My Carroça, a movement that uses graffiti, art, and viral social media to give visibility and dignity to garbage collectors in Brazil, who are important but marginalized recycling agents. His initiative is already producing legal in cultural changes in how these workers are treated, and gives people a platform to be part of the change through replicable events.
