Please use the form below to share stories and memories about playing with, collecting, preserving, or making art from discarded items. Your contribution can be as short or as long as you like. It could be a brief recollection (either from childhood or adulthood) of your experience with and memories about a particular object or collection of objects; or it could be a lengthier piece of writing that might take the shape of an essay or a story. We especially welcome contributions that explore the topic from an environmental perspective, gender relations, race or class. To submit artwork please query first via the Contact page.
