We CAN Make THE Difference!
THE WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 15th to 23rd Chalk4Peace!
You are invited to Take Action! - ("Scroll down for WHAT CAN YOU DO?")
To Participate in this GLOBAL outpouring of public art. Where we
makeour personal statements for peace on the pavements and sidewalks
of our cities all over our world.
Chalk4Peace IS HAPPENING!
All around the globe, together we are decorating, dedicating and
declaring, in deep sincerity our collective call for peace.
Chalk4Peace is about our empowerment. We The People, our global
culture, all people everywhere and our common desire to live in peace.
The Chalk4Peace project has already transformed the experience of
thousands of people attending demonstrations for peace all over the
world during the past 4 years. Chalk4Peace is both a tool and a
conduit for non violent public self expression,
and participation in the growing global movement for peace.
Chalk4Peace is an opportunity for all of us of all ages to make our
feelings known, especially the young, whose future is in dire
jeopardy as our global village falls faster and faster into the fear
breeding fear breeding fear spiral.
Our global culture is teetering on the edge of extinction.
No 1 person alone can turn this around, but together WE CAN!
"The Structure of world peace cannot be the work of one man, one
party,or one nation. It must be a peace which rests on the
cooperative effort of the whole world"
... Eleanor Roosevelt
Our basic human instincts drive us to seek safety. This is what this
chaos is all about.Our essential human survival instincts are acting
out of context with the wider global cultural need resulting in
mistrust, fear and conflict.
Everywhere the media bombards us with WAR TALK, distractions and
negative belief patterns that encourage us to believe that the future
of our world is out of our hands entirely.
One place we still have communal access to, is OUR STREETS.
We can balance our GLOBAL CONVERSATION with collective self-
expression using OUR STREETS AS OUR MEDIA!
Chalk4Peace is one step, a catalyst that can transform our global
conversation as "we the people", en masse make our statement that is
our common aspiration for PEACE.
START NOW! Just DO IT!
Carry some chalk with you, invite a friend with you, to chalk
inspirations on the pavement whenever and wherever you fancy.
Chalk is harmless, cheap and washes away within a few days.
Especially PARTICIPATE in the Sept 15th to 23rd
GLOBAL Chalk4Peace ACTION!
Make it happen in your Community!
(Scroll down for "WHAT CAN YOU DO?")
Lets us turn our grey streets into a living river of colour and
possibility - With poetry, hearts, peace symbols, empowering
statements, also expressions of our frustrations and despair.
All will be seen for several days by thousands of people, then as
they are washed away by the elements WE CAN CONTINUE to find fresh
places to Chalk4Peace.
We don't need to be an artist to Chalk4Peace. Every statement,
however small or large becomes part of the amazing tapestry that is
our global future.
This unique event conceivably, could be the largest of its kind in
modern history. It is a global effort that is happening.
We The People are spreading the word and making the effort to be a
part of this huge creative endeavour to bring Peace back into the
