Street Art Street Art or Chalk Art is a fun, creative, interactive process whereby artists plan and execute (large) scale murals or tableaus in public spaces; streets, sidewalks, building walls, etc The idea is to create a trompe loeil i.e. to trick the eye into thinking there is some real (impossible) scene in front of the viewer A canyon in the middle of the street A waterfall A gnome sweeping leaves under the sidewalk See examples following CONTACT JEAGLES@SHAW.CA 250-713-8756 3.

Proposal I propose to organize a regional contest similar to the Parksville sandcastle competition or the Dragon Boat Festival Competitors would deposit $100 (or scaled) to reserve a plot to do art on the street A parallel free street art section with chalk would provide a small (6ft-4ft) piece of sidewalk for Nanaimo youth to draw on fun, judged? Prizes? One or more large regional sponsor would be secured to provide prizes and chalk CONTACT JEAGLES@SHAW.CA 250-713-8756 8. Fun Drawing CONTACT JEAGLES@SHAW.CA 250-713-8756 9. DNBIA Link I am asking the DNBIA for support in the form of agreement to close off Commercial or the waterfront walkway?? To provide space to create the art Whatever street(s) are chosen, we would approach the city for permits This would be part of the Culture Days event on Sept 27-29 and would be promoted along with all Culture Days events but would use Social Media to reach the broader regional audience.
