In the fall of 2012, I took part in a Future Blitz that challenged students to imagine solutions to break down the bubble between Notre Dame’s campus and South Bend, Indiana. We all knew the student body’s general opinion on South Bend. What we had no idea of was what native Benders thought of their city. So my group proposed Chalk Talk: a movement to offer space for community expression.
