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 and Paradigm Pictures attended Drawing FergUSon Together: A Vision of Peace at the St. Louis Community College, Florissant Valley Sept. 18-19, 2015. Paul Westmacott and I traveled to Ferguson, MO to participate in their Social Justice Summit and CHALK4PEACE Community Celebration. Paul filmed countless interviews and sessions and I delivered the Keynote speech; and, with my new friend William, drew the the 30' peace symbol the community filled in with messages and visions of peace...and they did not stop there- by the end of Saturday, the entire plaza around Tony Cragg's Taurus sculpture was covered with peace, love and hope. Shout outs to Allieze Ruby Curry, Janice Nesser-Chu, Larhonda Wilson, Annie Wagganer, Terry Freeman, LM Oliver, Wesley JC Bell, Paul W., Dawn Chapman, Christine Ilewski-Huelsman,  Neko, MK,  Joshua, Paul, Brandon, William, Carol, Eric, Nick, Michael, Clarence, WGNU, and a slew of others who made this event a true highlight in the decade of CHALK4PEACE. It has been an honor to take part in a healing ceremony in Ferguson, Missouri.
