Open source bucket list

beforeidie

As a catharsis after the loss of a loved one, New Orleans artist Candy Chang painted the side of an abandoned house in her neighborhood with chalkboard paint and stenciled it with a grid of the sentence “Before I die I want to _______.” Passerbys could pick up a piece of chalk, reflect on their lives, and share their thoughts in public space. The project was so successful that she created a toolkit and started the site Before I Die, which allows others to continue the project in their own neighborhoods.
