The Guerilla Haiku Movement is public art experience that has been to 50 cities nationally engaging neighborhoods in creative play.
A Guerilla Haiku event is like none other. The formula is simple, you get a whole bunch of friends together and join a whole bunch of strangers in a public place. You grab your buckets of sidewalk chalk, and go on a wild haiku adventure into your cities with an optional scavenger hunt and your fancy as your guides.Take photos, send them back to Haiku Central, and feel emboldened to invite passers-by to haiku too
The result is a an afternoon of seeing your city with new eyes. Guerilla eyes. And a fleeting trail of your experiences left behind you.
“This fall we are heading to the Gordon Square Fall Fest to capture the stories of Detroit Avenue in 17-syllable odes that will be hung in a temporary installation up and down Detroit,” said Caley Vickerman, aka the Haiku Mistress. “Our ambitious goal is 500 haiku in one day, and we can only achieve it with your help, so come down, grab some chalk, and let those syllables fly!”
Guerilla Haiku is seeking volunteer agents of haiku- so if you have some time Saturday afternoon, October 17th, join us in our adventures: contact Caitlin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
