This! is Canada – Virtual Gallery
Experiences Canada’s This! Is Canada – Virtual Art Gallery provides a space for youth to express themselves through art and share their talents with the rest of the country. The gallery highlights the incredible talent, resilience, leadership and diversity of our country’s young people from coast-to-coast-to-coast!
This year’s gallery theme is “Pandemic Recovery and Renewal,” featuring creative expressions from youth between the ages of 12-25 about how their lives have changed and their aspirations for a post-pandemic world.
2021 VIRTUAL GALLERY THEME: PANDEMIC PERSPECTIVES
63 artworks were submitted last year exploring what life have been like for youth during the pandemic. Prizes were awarded in three age categories: 12-15, 16-19, and 20-25.
Gallery Awards were awarded to 3 youth in each age group: 12-15 years, 16-19 years, 20-25 years. A team of volunteer judges assisted Experiences Canada in reviewing all submissions. The final selection was determined based on three factors:
- The quality of the submission
- The artist’s personal bio, their representation of life during the pandemic and their aspirations for change in a post-pandemic world
- Ensuring a representative balance of Canada’s geographic, cultural, and linguistic diversity
SUPPORT THIS! IS CANADA – VIRTUAL PROGRAMS
We know that many families have been severely impacted by the pandemic, and we need your support to ensure no youth is left behind due to changes in their family’s financial circumstances, cultural concerns or geographical or technological disadvantages.
You can help ensure our programs are accessible to all. Please consider making a donation, allowing youth to stay connected and participate in our virtual programs.
