The "Timoun" are the junior members of the "Gran Rue" community of artists who live in the alleys and shanty towns off of the Grand Rue (officially the Boulevard Jean-Jacques Desallines), and make art out of "recycled materials" (otherwise known as trash). Originally the main shopping street of Port-au-Prince, the street was in an advanced state of decay when I visited in November 2009. The group, which goes by the name "Atis Rezistans" has exhibited internationally, and in December 2009 hosted an art event known as the Ghetto Bienniale 2009.
