Starting on Earth Day April 22nd - April 29th we are starting a week long project circling litter with sidewalk chalk to cause attention to a environmental issue and a cultural problem. By the end of the week, our goal is to raise 5,000 circles to make the statement that we want to live in a cleaner environment. Grab some chalk, circle litter, take a photo, and post your circles using hashtag, #PLAYCCC on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.

who & what ...

Chalk Circle Change is a social art project circling litter with sidewalk chalk to call attention to it, have people take notice, and maybe even pick it up. We want to empower people to change the way they look at their neighborhoods, cities, and the world, while having fun doing it. All it takes is a piece of sidewalk chalk, drawing a simple circle, and a little bit of your time to make a huge difference. Lets make the invisible, visible by putting litter in the spotlight.

event @ union square, nyc ...

On Saturday, April 26, 2014 we will be in Union Square, NYC fully equipped with tons of sidewalk chalk that we will be handing out for FREE to anyone who wants to join in! Pay it forward by participating in this week long, environmentally conscious, social movement. Together we can circle the world, raise the issue, and bring the focus back down to earth.

it's about circles ...

This campaign is not about the money, though we will take donations just to cover the cost of the project. All of those proceeds will go towards the art project, the event in Union Square, and shipping the chalk provided by the rewards. If we reach over $1,000 any additional funds will go towards chalk for workshops for schools and not-for-profit organizations, which we frequent often spreading the word about our environment.

But the true target for this project is 5,000 chalk circles around pieces of litter with the confidence that people will take notice and pick it up. In the long run, we hope to make people think about the next move when they finish a cigarette, unwrap a piece of candy, or take the last sip from their coffee cup. One circle could change the mind of one person, imagine what 5,000 could do. On Earth Day, April 22, 2014 we begin keeping count of the circles that you post using hashtag #PLAYCCC.

The greatest donation we could receive would be your time in helping us make the week of April 22-29 a huge success. If you are excited about this epic art project, please visit our website, chalkcirclechange.com, or share us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter! Share us, hashtag #PLAYCCC, and we will count that as a circle for social change!

Risks and challenges

My only constraint is timing since I am a student at Design for Social Innovation – the School of Visual Arts and this is my thesis project. I have to have the project completed by the month of April to showcase.

I am going to work fast and efficiently to get chalk rewards as quickly as possible to people for the event. Thanks :)
