The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is encouraging young people to get creative through a unique initiative called EVOKE — Uncover Your Human Rights Perspective.
EVOKE is a creative expression of visual art on what human rights mean to youth. It encourages insightful looks into the past, present and future of human rights infringements and triumphs.
Creative pieces can be submitted online by May 25 and is open to those aged 13-25.
The winning art will be exhibited in front of thousands of people at a ceremony for the Canadian Museum for Human Rights this summer. Winners from each province and territory will be flown in for the event.
