Weaving the Streets is a special Weave News citizen journalism project focusing on the diverse ways in which ordinary people around the world use public space to express themselves. Weavers are everywhere, and we are constantly documenting and reflecting on examples of street art and other traces of street-based actions, movements, and forms of expression that are often ignored by mainstream media.  Some of our work is also connected with our sister project, the People's History Archive (see below). This work is sponsored by Crossing Boundaries, an interdisciplinary humanities project at St. Lawrence University made possible by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Initiated in 2015 by the Richard F. Brush Art Gallery and the Libraries and Instructional Technology division at St. Lawrence University, the People's History Archive features selected street art stickers, posters, and ephemera from around the world dating from the 1910s to present day. Contributors include undergraduate students, young alumni, and faculty who create mini-online interpretive exhibits using items from a Street Art Graphics digital archive and/or items contributors have selected themselves from off-campus research projects. Items can also be viewed on an interactive timeline and map.
