This! is Canada – A CELEBRATION OF YOUTH

Experiences Canada invites you to join us as we celebrate the amazing accomplishments of Canadian youth during these challenging times. Whether they have been sharing stories about their community as part of our virtual exchanges; creating music videos as part of our virtual choir; or contributing art to our virtual art expo – we wanted to take a moment to celebrate this journey with them!

Stroll the virtual Art Gallery; watch the four music videos; and take a tour across Canada with our new interactive map featuring youth projects from every corner of the country!

Join us as we give these young people a rousing virtual round of applause!

The flagship project is the launch of an interactive map of Canada that will feature the contributed work of individual youth, schools & youth groups across the country, who participated in This! Is Canada Virtual Exchanges.

These young Canadians have created videos, websites, and other multi-media features that showcase their own communities and were shared with each other throughout the program. All of these projects have been brought together and uploaded to our interactive virtual map of Canada – enabling the rest of us to “tour across Canada,” visiting communities as a virtual journey across the country as seen by the eyes of our young people.

The This! Is Canada – Virtual Choir, is made up of 25 youth age 11-17 from across Canada, with a passion for singing. Over the past 3 months to choir have met weekly for rehearsals, and learned, recorded, and created videos for four distinctly Canadian songs. 

During the event we will debut the video clips these youth have created for: Scars To Your Beautiful (Alessia Cara),  Blinding Lights (The Weeknd),  Un Canadien Errant (Whitehorse), and Northern Lights (The Jerry Cans). We will also hear from a few choir members about their experience in the program.

 

Throughout May and June, Experiences Canada is inviting youth with an interest in visual arts to submit artwork with the theme ‘Pandemic Perspectives’. These artworks will combine to create This! Is Canada – Virtual Gallery.

The virtual gallery provides a space for young Canadians to express themselves through art and share their talents with the rest of the country. The gallery serves to build community awareness and connectedness by showcasing the incredible challenges & strengths Canadian youth have faced and overcome during the pandemic.

During the event we will showcase pieces from the gallery, as well as announce the winners of the Gallery Awards.

SUPPORTERS

Investing in the education and future of Canadian youth benefits us all. Every gift has an immediate impact, helping young Canadians broaden their connections and increase their exposure to diverse experiences will help them grow as the leaders of tomorrow we need them to be. We could not accomplish our goals without the support, involvement and enthusiasm of our generous donors and partners.

Thank you for bringing young Canadians together at a time when they need it most!
