What are the essential questions and what are your answers to those questions? Create Place artists used a chalkboard to find out, with a process adapted from Wing’s public art project (2010), “The University Avenue Project” in St. Paul where he photographed hundreds of people in various circumstances holding chalkboards on which revealing statements are hand-written.
With the Creative CityMaking Project, Wing and Ashley gave chalkboards to community organizations and individual citizens to find out what are the important questions and answers in a series of Chalk Talk Workshops and Street Engagements. Participants photographed themselves with their questions and answers. The team also gave chalkboards to community members who were interested in this process so they could use the tool and send photos of the responses they gathered back to the team.
