Hope and Healing Art Contest

Mental Health & Wellness, Self Care

An annual art contest designed to celebrate young Nunavut artists, and to encourage hope and healing through art. Children and youth have the opportunities to explore their creativity and create art to help others. Each year there are different themes for each age group. In 2021, children aged 5-12 could send a drawing under the three Health Promotion themes (Environmental Health, Physical activity and Healthy families). Youth aged 13-18 could send a piece of art under the Mental Health Promotion themes (Mindfulness, My happy place and Self-Care)
