Chalk Walk

The idea: get Winnipeggers out and actively participating in public space through a collaborative sidewalk chalk mural while exploring art and culture in The Exchange District. We meet at noon in the plaza in front of the Can-West Global Building at Portage and Fort. A route for the walk will be demarcated along the sidewalk. Participants would then pick a length along the route to create their art with chalk. Chalk will be provided at the meeting place until we run out buy don’t be shy to bring your own! The end goal would be to have a continuous walk of art on the sidewalk for all to explore and admire. We want to get as many artists, galleries, organizations and local businesses on board to participate in any way possible. We see the event as a great opportunity to promote Downtown Urban Activity, promote Exchange District businesses, artist and galleries and give Winnipeggers of all ages a quirky and fun reason to come downtown. If you would like to get involved or you are an artist who might be interested in being a feature artist for the event, please let us know and we would be happy to stay in contact as a part of our unique community art collaboration!
