Slang terms are also common. Heinz 57, Heinz, or Heinz Hound is often used for dogs of uncertain ancestry, in a playful reference to the "57 Varieties" slogan of the H. J. Heinz Company.

Scientists and scholars usually use the terms mongrel, mixed-breed, or random-bred dog for dogs born of breeds not supervised or deliberately planned by humans. The term crossbreed is used to describe mixes of known breeds, sometimes deliberately mated. Most dog breeds are a result of human selection. Existing dog breeds began as mixed-breeds, either random-bred or by deliberate crosses of existing breeds.

The first idea was to create a collective formed by people that you know throughout life and you think that they can do some good artworks. It does not matter if they are artist or not; moreover,it does not matter if they do not believe they are artists or they feel they are not capable enough to do any kind of artistic work. Actually, most of the people who were proposed to participate in the collective thought that they could not do it because they believed that they were not artists at all. We believe in a free world where any feeling can be expressed through artistic expression and we don’t care if it’s art or not. Everybody is welcome, any idea is good.

Many different kinds of people from different backgrounds and diverse interests have participated in the process of creation of this collective – even people who do not want to be part of it or who do not really care about the collective itself. This blog has been created to keep people informed about activities and projects in the quickest possible way.
