  • The Akron League of Creative Interventionists took to the streets on November 29 and 30 to ask Akronites what they're grateful for. We encouraged passersby to stand on a soapbox (found and donated by Alex Miller) and shout all their thankful thoughts into a megaphone (made from cardboard and duck tape by Christina Wagner). Chalk was also provided as an alternative outlet. We picked this date because we knew Crafty Mart was happening and there would be lots of foot traffic. The main organizer, Brit Charek happened to walk by and we thanked her for her wonderful work. She, appropriately, is the closing clip of this video.
