This! is Canada – Virtual Gallery
Experiences Canada’s This! Is Canada – Virtual Art 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. The gallery highlights the talents and diversity of our country’s young people from coast-to-coast-to-coast!
The gallery’s theme is ‘Pandemic Perspectives’, which features artwork from youth between the ages of 12-25. The gallery showcases young Canadian’s representations of life during the pandemic and their aspirations for change in a post-pandemic world.
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.
