Hi Jason,
thanks for info. about Chalk 4Peace.
We intend to do some pavement chalking as part of our Suffragette
perfomances in Oct.
Chalking announcements about meetings and actions was an important
information tool used by suffragettes.
They used to get arrested in those days too!
love alice (Sheffield Popular Arts)

"Chalk4Peace represents a new direction in activism. It requires no
organisation other than the communication of the idea – it is self
organising, using the streets as a form of media that is fully
accessible to us the general public and moved by the enthusiasm of
those who are touched by the concept – Chalk is readily available
every where! – It harmless, temporary, yet offers a unique way to
contribute to the global conversation that shapes our culture".

"The streets are the perfect medium for this form of activism - they
are used by all of us every day and are accessible to us as a form of
media for 'us ordinary folk', using chalk as the means of _expression.
Chalk is harmless, temporary, yet lasts long enough for the messages
to be shared with many as they pass by"

There is nothing wrong with our world, we are just having a weird
conversation - Reclaim the conversation
