This project from artist Candy Chang started with an abandoned house in New Orleans in her neighborhood. She transformed it in a giant chalkboard where residents can write on the wall and remember what is important to them.
Within a day the chalkboard was full of responses. Photo strip here.
Once the wall is filled, Candy wash the board with water and start with a clean slate again. All responses are documented and some will be included in a book.

Now Candy Chang get many requests from people who’d like to install it in their city.
More about the project here.

I asked the same question on Twitter:
David Venn: “I want to start my own nonprofit organization or social movement.”
Esther van der Wal: “Before I die I want to have loved, traveled and left a positive mark on the world.”

Makes me curious: What do you want to do before you die? Tell us in the comments.
