About the speaker
Robyn Stegman is best known as the voice of Mr. Trash Wheel, a garbage eating, ocean cleaning machine in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. She has helped the trash wheels reach the front page of Reddit, the pages of the National Geographic, and a place in the hearts of over 40,000 fans. Robyn has been creating digital tools, campaigns, and programs to empower changemakers since before it was cool. Her first social change campaign was organizing a student strike in protest of the unfair conditions in her third grade classroom. Since then, she has worked with organizations like AmeriCorps VISTA, the Center for Urban Families, the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, and Bloomberg Philanthropies to develop communication strategies that spark action. She dreams of someday being so fantastically rich that she can hire a team of scientists to bio-engineer a dinosaur theme park. Until then she keeps herself busy pirating in the Inner Harbor, performing at the Baltimore Improv Group, belting out a tune at BMore Karaoke, and creating spectacles wherever she finds herself.
MAP first and foremost serves living, emerging and mid-career artists with the understanding that the organization plays a key and critical role in providing a platform for personal & professional artistic growth within the contemporary, visual, fine arts realm. This is achieved through annual programs (exhibitions/events/speaking engagements); the promotion of artwork sales outside that of a commercial gallery; the creation of income-generating opportunities for artists; and MAP’s work through the Maryland State Artist Registry and Resource Bulletin.
At Impact Hub Baltimore, we believe complex challenges will never be solved by one person or organization alone. We need to work together. That’s why we set out to build a thriving, diverse community where people collaborate across sectors, networks, and neighborhoods.
