2013 New York Emmy Award Nominee for Arts: Program Feature/Segment
Armed with colorful chalk and something to say, The Guerilla Haiku Movement hit the streets of Orange, New Jersey and filled them with haiku poetry. The four hour event was meant to help build community through creativity and interpersonal connections. Participants are encouraged to get as many people as possible from the town involved in making poetry. Though the sidewalk chalk will eventually fade, organizers hope the sense of community that stems from the activities won't.
