THURSDAY 11th APRIL
meet at 6.00pm at Devonshire Green next to The Forum
Come with us as we chalk our way around the streets of Sheffield on an adventure to show whose streets these are… all of ours! Let’s reclaim the streets where we’ve been followed, insulted, harassed or assaulted. There’s no set route, just come with your chalk and messages you want to spread. Check out these awesome pictures of Hollaback Ghent’s chalk walk for some inspiration: http://wechalkwalk.tumblr.com/
