ChARTing Change showcases the stories, visions, and perspectives of youth, and highlights the important role the arts can play in envisioning and enacting better futures.

A big focus of this program from now until May 1st 2021 is the ChARTing Change Art Contest. This contest is a  creative call out to youth to ‘chart the change’ they want to see in the world…and potentially win an iPhone 11, iPad Air, or Air Pods in the process!

Enter the contest if you are between the ages of 14 and 18, reside in BC,  want to create ART that ACTivates System Change, and draw attention to social and environmental injustices in our midst. Every month contest entrants will have a chance to win early bird prizes.

Contest Educators About Inspiration

The ChARTing Change program began in 2020 with a small cohort of emerging Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour artists making a series of videos and accompanying workshops designed to engage students in critical and creative reflection, about racism and systemic inequities.
Another batch of engaging videos that prompt timely and important conversations in schools is coming soon.
