The World We Live In

CYVAC 2023 Theme

The 2023 Canada Youth Visual Art Contest (CYVAC) is back for the THIRD year! Hosted by Youth Initiative Vancouver (YIV), and co-organized by Academy of Modern Art (AOMA), the contest aims to encourage multicultural communication and philanthropic endeavours and to discover outstanding artistic and design talents around the world.

 

Our rich experiences have shaped our unique perspectives; the world has manifested itself in different series. This year, CYVAC’s theme was “The World We Live In,” in hopes of encouraging artists to reflect meaningfully on their perception of the world. What does the diverse and inclusive world look to you?
