CWM Goes to the Victoria International Chalk Festival (again!)

On September 13th and 14th this year, CWM joined a bunch of incredible chalk artists for a weekend of power chalking on Government Street in Victoria!

We entered the Victoria International Chalk Art Festival for the second year in a row…

And here’s what we chalked:

The Chalk of the Town: HandMeDown Sneakers



It’s Not Because I’m Lazy. It’s Because…


“I face multiple employment  barriers.”

“I was born into poverty.”

“I don’t have an address to put on my resume”

“They want a phone number to contact me, but I don’t have one.”

“I don’t own proper interview attire.”

“Nobody will give me a chance.”

“I don’t have the money to buy makeup.”

“People judge me for the way I look.”

“There is not enough affordable housing in THIS city.”

“I am not able to get the treatment I need.”

Chalk Challenge, Week 14

Whose shoes would you wear?

How do you empathise with people? Do you imagine walking in someone else’s shoes, and try to see things from their point of view?

This week, chalk a pair of shoes, or the phrase “take a walk in someone else’s shoes”.
