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...

James Madison Rocks CHALK4PEACE! from Fairfax County Public Schools, VA

Our Fearless East Coast Leader, Marielle Mariano chalked up another school on her ever expanding list of places where she has launched CHALK4PEACE! And no less, she brought the project to a Vienna high School named after a president! James Madison High School, home of the War Cats.  She deserves a medal for bringing the peace. The event took place on Sept. 29; she sent photos to us, which we always encourage, so that we can share each event with the world! This post is dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi, who was born on this day in 1869.

Thank you again, Ms. Marielle, long time Arts Education Specialist for Fairfax County Public Schools and East Coast Director for CHALK4PEACE...Your leadership with C4P has made all the difference in the world! We know your students feel that way too! Click in the middle of the photos to see more!
