CHALK4PEACE has been invited to Ferguson, Missouri by St. Louis Community College at Florissant Valley to participate in "Drawing FergUSon Together: A Vision of Peace" as part of a Social Justice Summit/Weekend of Healing Sept. 18-19. We are working closely with the College and Community leaders to bring the population of Ferguson together with a symposium of discussion, message and visions of peace and reconciliation. St. Louis Community College has been involved in CHALK4PEACE as a peace, art and photographic project since 2007. It's been guided by Janice Nesser, Professor of Photography and Chair of the Arts and Humanities Dept.
It is a great honor for CHALK4PEACE to be selected to be part of the healing process for the Community of Ferguson. C4P will be documenting the weekend with the College and Paradigm Pictures. Documenting this event as a film is the focus of our impending Indiegogo campaign.
