Defining Moments: Discovering our Canadian Stories

Youth from across Canada have been contributing to a national dialogue on what it means to be Canadian by submitting artwork that reflects their experiences living in this country. Since last August Defining Moments: Discovering our Canadian Stories (www.canadianmoments.ca) has received hundreds of submissions that reflect some of the most pressing viewpoints of our young generations.

We will be accepting submissions of your experiences living in Canada until March 1st! Any medium is welcomed – just go to the ART CONTEST page to submit your work. Submissions will be automatically entered into the online collection and could be seen in select locations across the country when our traveling exhibit launches in July, 2012.
