Activism Art Education Youth — 22 February 2012

In the fall of 2010 Culture Collective collaborated with Buildon in San Francisco and Oakland to create a video for the Chalk for Change program initiated by Tom Silverman. Chalk for Change challenges youth to inform themselves about important political, social, or environmental issues in their community and take to the street with a message. Students depict issues that are important to them, with chalk, in public places to spark dialogue with people passing by.

Tom invited Culture Collective Director, Jacob Devaney, to speak with the High School Students in this program about using social media and art to create positive change in their community. Afterwards, a video was created about the project for students to share through their Facebook and other social networks. There is also a how-to PDF below for download if you’d like to make something like this happen in your community!
