In recognition of Black History month the Newmarket African Caribbean Canadian Association (NACCA) is inviting Newmarket youth Grades 1 to 12 who self-identify as the people of African descent to submit artwork in any medium responding to the theme Still I Rise: Celebrating stories of strength, courage, and innovation.
The call for submissions closes on January 11th, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. EST. This is an opportunity for Newmarket youth to share and express their own individual stories for the community to see. Students can interpret the theme in any way they see fit, however, they must provide a brief description of the artwork and how it relates to the theme. Ten (10) artworks will be chosen from a panel of jurors consisting of members from NACCA, the Town of Newmarket, and a local guest artist. The selected artworks will be on display at the Old Town Hall from February 1st to 23rd, 2019 in the Community Gallery.
