Poem Across the City: Rwanda

POEM ACROSS THE CITY: RWANDA will commemorate the 15th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide by moving from point A to point B using the public's response to the word "strength" a path to travel. Passersby will be asked to write a word or phrase with chalk on the asphalt connected to the one proceeding leaving an urban poem behind for the public to read. This public art campaign was inspired by the brilliant folks folks at Illegal Art. To host a POEM in your city please be in touch at  

Send us any ideas you may have to help raise funds to sponsor a child's school fees or to host a local campaign. We will post your ideas below and do whatever we can to help make them happen. Please be in touch at
