We've had more than 1000 events in 50 countries and have covered more than 10 miles of  pavement with messages and visions of peace in sidewalk chalk. We believe in  "Drawing the World Together..."

CHALK4PEACE was part of the Student Peace Day Observance at the United Nations in New York last fall to honor the International Day of Peace.

Our goal: ONE MILLION artists chalking 4 peace at the same time...

From its beginnings in 2003 in Arlington, VA, as a Sunday sidewalk chalk project for children, CHALK4PEACE has been recognized and funded by the Arlington Arts Commission, the DC Commission for the Arts and Humanities, the DC Mayor's Office, the Humanities Project of Arlington, Whole Foods Markets, the CSC Invitational Cycling Classic, the Boulder Arts Commission, the Pasadena (CA) Community Foundation, UNICEF, the Clown and Clown Festival (Monte San Giusto, IT), the Gooden School, Beach E.S., Berkeley Earth Day, and hundreds of peace-minded individuals from around the world.


CHALK4PEACE has grown through the efforts of hundreds of events organizers, teachers, parents, community outreach coordinators, libraries, arts centers and other peace minded individuals and organizations.

CHALK4PEACE is not encouraged as an anti-war demonstration; rather, it is a Pro-Peace creative presentation for young artists of all ages.
