In a world where media and imagery are constant, Harleen wants to take a day to explore the impact art can have. As such, she is planning Chalk the Block, a daylong event to be held on the University of Southern California campus, where she will invite youth of the community to share their dreams through art. The event aims to take participants and viewers out of their everyday stresses and allow them to keep perspective while creating a safe, encouraging space to share ideas of future aspirations. Chalk the Block incorporates community outreach, networking opportunities, and a safe space to talk about dreams and passions. With live music and food, the event will turn into a block party and hopefully attract lots of people. Ultimately, her vision is that people will be inspired and rejuvenated to go out into the world and pursue their goals.
