Street art serves many purposes: to surprise, delight, claim space, make a statement, promote change, and more! During the pandemic, people have been doing small things to their own yards to create a sense of community or bring joy at a time when we are physically distancing.
Are you ready for the #AnonymouseChallenge?
- Go for a discovery walk and take note of anything you see of interest. It might be a mural, a sign, a note on the sidewalk, a garden statue, or something else entirely.
- Create something for your own community. Here are some suggestions and photos of things I saw on my own discovery walks in Toronto.

You could paint a rock or find something to display in your yard or garden:
You can even find ways to work with snow:
When you are finished, share your picture online using the hashtag #AnonymouseChallenge or email your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org for a chance to be featured!
