Floraffiti® comes back to Raleigh, NC!
Award winning creative placemaking and community engagement project, Floraffiti®, is back in Raleigh!
It's about your relationship with where you live and the ways you make a connection to your sense of place in this expanding, vibrant part of the Triangle. Share stories about the sites and sounds of Raleigh, your favorite places, and where you have created memorable moments that reflect the heart of this city like no other.
Floraffiti began with a kick-off event at CAM & Artspace during the First Friday Art Walk on March 1, 2019. Several community workshops followed, all designed with family friendly activities to cultivate the words that were planted March 11-16 with volunteer FloraGardeners.
Thanks to all the people who helped generate the list of words and images to plant and to the ahh-mazing FloraGardeners!
Current Pop Up Events
April 1-June 30
The seeds are all nestled in the ground working with the sun and in a bed of moisture from all the recent rains. At the peak of Floraffiti®’s growth, Pop Up Events all over the city will be taking place using the words and imagery as inspiration. Check out the website at Floraffiti.com and follow on Facebook, Insta, and Twitter for updates on these events and more information on all the facets of this public art project.
Check out the map below for the locations for this year’s words generated by local residents in community workshops held earlier this year. Quite often there are multiple words in one location. There have been two special FLoraffiti® plantings this year not included on the map for your treasure hunting delight!
