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...

CHALK4PEACE observes Dr. King's birthday this year with TWO events...

CHALK4PEACE will join the Thacher School in Ojai, CA with a Service to the Community theme during their Dr. MLK, Jr. symposiums, including C4P for the eighth year. Thanks to a collection of the greatest firefighters on the planet and some critical luck with the breezes that blew, the school was saved from the ravages of the Thomas Fire.  The C4P event will take place on the Pergola Sunday afternoon, January 14. The event is open to the Thacher Family, Alumni and close friends.

The next day, January 15, the Ojai Valley Youth Foundation will hold their Dr. King observance with a star studded collection of speakers and entertainers, with County Supervisor Das Williams delivering the Keynote address. The event once again takes place around the Libbey Fountain in downtown Ojai. CHALK4PEACE is helping to sponsor the event and will be there to encourage artistic messages of peace. This is the third time C4P has joined OVYF for projects involving peace, justice and harmony. Ojai has been through a lot recently, surrounded and encroached by the largest wildfire in California history; it made it through and is a shining example of community pulling together in tumultuous times. All are invited.
