News from the Sidewalk

CHALK4PEACE is the global chalk art project about peace. We celebrate our eleventh year as a worldwide event encouraging peace. CHALK4PEACE, Inc.  is a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization.

We've had more than 1000 events in 50 countries and have covered more than 12 miles of pavement with messages and visions of peace in sidewalk chalk...

We believe in  "Drawing the World Together..."

CHALK4PEACE participated in the Peace Day Student Observance at the United Nations in New York City in 2016 to honor the International Day of Peace. Hundreds of thousands of young artists of all ages have joined us since 2005.

Our goal: ONE MILLION artists Chalking 4 Peace at the same time...

Because we need Peace...Now more than ever...


The Groveton Elementary School, in Alexandria, VA is excited about its eighth CHALK4PEACE event this coming fall. Marielle Mariano, Markeen Sutter & other Peacebuilding educators have encouraged the student body to learn all about Peace: its history, its leaders, how to deal with conflict resolution, how to visualize and write about peace and share their hopes and dreams of a better, more peaceful world. CHALK4PEACE is honored to have such CHALKSTARS dedicated to TEACHING PEACE. Tigers, you are mighty! For more of their photos see:
