Northeast Arts KC Chalk Walk, April 25th and 26th

chalkwalk3 Why is there a Chalk Walk?

The Northeast Arts KC Chalk Walk Festival celebrates creativity while building community. Chalk Walk spotlights the best of what the culturally diverse Historic Northeast Neighborhoods have to offer by bringing Kansas City citizens together at Concourse Park. The Chalk Walk Festival is a collaboration of neighbors, local business, schools, organizations and artisans that thrive in and around the Historic Northeast Neighborhoods.

There is a false perception among people in Kansas City that the urban core and the Historic Northeast is an unsafe place to visit, live and raise families. Despite this reputation of violence in our neighborhood, many diverse people have made homes in this area and the fact remains, violence can happen anywhere in Kansas City. Neighbors striving together in a community can eradicate factors that stimulate this violence, like gang culture, indifference, and racism. Modeling healthy and positive choices can make the difference, especially for neighborhood kids at risk. Chalk Walk brings an intergenerational community of people together in a common cause: to celebrate creativity while building community.

The Event Date is: April 25th and 26th.
