Like the little gnome in the movie, Amelie, our graffiti wall moved from ZSR to the Mag Quad today for a few hours. The Gender Equality Allies group on campus supports positive body image, positive role models and other issues on inequality. Last year, we partnered with this group, headed by Amy Shackelford to do the Love is Louder Than Postcard project.
This year, Gender Equality Allies held an event called “Love Your Body Week,” to urge individuals to post positive thoughts about the body or humanity in general on the graffiti wall. I met them on the loading dock in the morning with the wall, and they transported it to the stage area on the Mag Quad.
People passing by were encouraged to write positive thoughts on the wall. This was an unusual way for the graffiti wall to be used, but one that was super positive. Great concept.
