#PrideHuron #PridePerth #PaintingsOnThePavement

In a bid to salute diversity during Pride Month, the Foundation for Enriching Education, in partnership with Huron County Library and Perth County Libraries, invites students to create a masterpiece with chalk on the sidewalks this June.

Through their chalk paintings on the pavement, students are encouraged to celebrate similarities, embrace individuality and create an awareness of inclusivity in Huron and Perth. By creating positive images in support of the 2SLGBTQAI+ community, students will build a better understanding of themselves and of others.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE:

  1.  Register and receive a free box of sidewalk chalk:
    First-come, first-served, students K – Gr 12 can register and pick up a free box of chalk at any Huron County or Perth County Public Library in June.
  2. View the Video above for inspiration.   The video was created by Stratford-based visual artist Claire Scott in 2021.
  3. Create your masterpiece
  4. Take a photo and upload the photo to mom and dad’s social media page with the hashtags #PrideHuron or #PridePerth and #PaintingsOnThePavement
  5. Send a copy to info@miniaturem83.sg-host.com with the student name in the message for the digital gallery at www.foundationforeducation.ca. Let us know if you are comfortable having your student’s name posted publicly with the work on both our social media networks (Facebook and Instagram) and the website. If not, we’ll post it with “Anonymous” followed by a numeric identifier.
    ie “Anonymous12”.
  6. Photos must be submitted by June 30, 2023 to be eligible for the prizes.
