Chalks can be useful tools to literally â€œgive the floorâ€ to the population. The short-lived messages it allows to draw can be use during exploratory walks to collect participantsâ€™ feelings and experiences (as we did in Paris).
Chalks can be used to seek awareness toward special causes.
- There are many â€œChalks festivalâ€ around the world organised in cities in order to promotes appreciation of the arts and creates playful moments especially for the Youngers.
- During the last International Anti-Street Harassment Week (2016) Stop Harcellement de Rue held a â€œChalk Walkâ€ in different French cities as a mean to raise awareness on the issue and changes mentalities.Â During the walk passers-by were invited to write-back messages to harassers and to say #EnoughIsEnough!
