Turae Dabney, PUP (People for Urban Progress) Executive Director
Turae Dabney of PUP joins us to share their mission. Since its inception in 2008, and the initial project which transformed salvaged roof material from the RCA Dome into bags, wallets, and other products, PUP has been devoted to using design and responsible reuse to make Indianapolis a better place to live - to create the responsible and resilient city of the future. Notable projects since the “Dome Bag Project” include PUP Stops (the transformation of old Bush Stadium seats into seating along IndyGo bus stops throughout the city) and the Amtrak Collection (backpacks, bags, wallets, and accessories made from upcycled leather from Amtrak train seats). At PUP, they're always on the lookout for innovative and creative ideas and projects that focus on reuse and sustainability. They invite all designers to the conversation and believe we will not be an equitable society until true diversity of thought and design is represented at the table.
