Now the beige and the brown disappeared and I saw many young people around playing in that area. So I did a bit of research and discovered that this project was designed together with the neighbourhood residents. The alleyways feature gardens, playgrounds, exercise equipment as well as other elements to let residents spend some time for recreation as generally Yangon is a dense area and lacks good public space.
Artists local NGOs and merchants, tour companies are all working together to ensure long term sustainability of the space and to keep it clean, inclusive and vibrant!
Alley Garden is a Project that is funded, supported and organised by Many Governments and NGOs both Internationally and locally and it is a proof that art can be used for different purposes including social changes into our everyday life!
