About the Free Art Friday movement

One of the entries at this year’s Vancouver Island Short Film Festival, #FAFATL, was a documentary looking at Atlanta’s Found Art Friday movement; artists make art and leave art and people find art and take art. (It can happen on a Friday but it doesn’t have to.)

I thought it was an interesting extension of the Random Acts of Kindness movement. Injecting moments of surprise love/humour/art/kindness into people’s lives can only ever be a good thing. Right? A lot of things can go wrong/sideways/badly in this world, but it seems to me that this isn’t one of them.

Apparently this was a thing in Nanaimo a few years ago. I wonder if it could be again?

Today I learned about the Free Art Friday movement. #bloguary
