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 maintains a photographic archive of art about peace that holds its own in the global peace movement. The peace our artists create is fleeting. It is our great fortune that sites share their photos with us to share with the world. Their pictures tell their story.
These are C4P fan faves over the years. We have thousands; these are some favorites from four continents...
