Guerilla Haiku returns to Atlanta September 15th, 2012.

Are you ready to be part of a movement?!

Armed only with sidewalk chalk, your own vitality and a digital camera; in the company of strangers that are soon-to-be kindred spirits, you will temporarily and eloquently change the face of this city- and thereby the world.


Join us.   The Guerilla Haiku Movement returns to  Atlanta on Saturday, September 15th, 2012 from 1 – 5 pm followed by closing ceremonies at at local bar.

Gather between 12:30 and 1pm near the Piedmont Park 12th Street Entrance.  It’s Free, although donations are gladly accepted to help cover the cost.

 Register Now!


Come dressed for urban adventure (in and out of doors so dress accordingly)

You will be randomly split into groups of 5-8.  Bring friends, family, people you run into on the way over that are clearly full of joy.  But recognize that it is essential that you want to play with others (unknown others).  For such is the spirit of the event.

Each group will be given a scavenger hunt, a map of one neighborhood in their city, a bucket of sidewalk chalk and one person must have a digital camera. Together you will travel to your ‘hood.  Once there, the magic begins.  Inspired by the place and each other, you will create haiku to decorate that place.  Engage as many passers-by as you wish (i am a big proponent of engaging passers-by).  And then document your work with photos.

We will convene together as a large crew when we are finished (5pm-ish) at a local water hole for a final Haiku-off and general good cheer.  I will upload photos from each group to the fledgling website  and give each group an opportunity to comment on their awesomeness.  And we will frolic.  As is our nature.

See you there. 

To Haiku!
