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!
Gallery submissions are now closed. Keep an eye out for our next Virtual Gallery by signing up for our newsletter.
GENERAL PRIZE DRAW
Gallery Awards were awarded to 5 youth (1 Winner and 4 honourable mentions) 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 the theme ‘Feels like home’
- Ensuring a representative balance of Canada’s geographic, cultural, and linguistic diversity
All youth who submitted artwork were also added to a draw to win one of 8 $25 gift cards. At the end of the submission period, all artworks were reviewed by our team of volunteer judges who selected pieces in each age category to receive the Gallery Award.
2022 GALLERY AWARDS
2022 VIRTUAL GALLERY THEME: FEELS LIKE HOME
We received 136 submissions for our 2022 Virtual Gallery! The 2022 theme was “Feels Like Home” where we invited youth to submit art (in any medium) that represented what makes them feel like home. Whether it be friendships, family, culture, or a specific place or community that makes them feel at home. Prizes were awarded in three age categories: 12-15, 16-19, and 20-25.
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.
