Hand-me-down Sneakers from our ‘Put Yourself in Someone Else’s…” piece, chalked at the Victoria International Chalk Art Festival 2014!
Remember the other pair we chalked in Vancouver? Check it out here!
This was the text we chalked with that pair:
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.”
Vote for capes!!
Why is this chalky one wearing a cape? Find out this weekend!
Write, Speak, Share
Enjoy the festival, everyone 🙂 Write, speak and share your words, thoughts, ideas and stories!
What was the last thing you chalked?
Learning Outside the Box
We want to find new and innovative ways of learning, teaching, sharing vocabulary and exchanging ideas! Why should fun creative learning end with childhood? Why not use art, pictures, and CHALK to broaden our horizons, expand our communities, and colour in the gaps in our communication 🙂
How do you like to learn?
Chalk With Me went a little further north this week and reached the Yukon!! This is in Whitehorse: right across the street from Rotary Park, in front of the SS Klondike!
