Indigenous Arts & Stories competition Deadline March 31 2019

Indigenous Arts & Stories competition-Deadline

“…Ready to enter the Indigenous Arts & Stories competition online? Great! The deadline for entry is March 31. The contest is open to Canadians of Indigenous ancestry (self-identified Status, Non-Status, Inuit and Métis) between the ages of 6 and 29.

“… Indigenous Arts & Stories
Indigenous Arts & Stories (formerly the Canadian Aboriginal Writing and Arts Challenge) was born in 2005 out of the success of Our Story: Aboriginal Voices on Canada’s Past published by Doubleday Canada in which nine leading Indigenous authors from across the country, including Tantoo Cardinal, Tom King and Drew Hayden Taylor, contributed a short fictional story about a defining moment in Indigenous history. The program quickly became the largest and most recognizable creative writing competition in Canada for Indigenous youth.
In 2010, Historica Canada (formerly The Historica-Dominion Institute) announced the expansion of the program into arts, making the competition available to a new audience of Indigenous youth – those who are not writers, but instead express themselves through painting, drawing and photography. We believe that the expanded program gives start to the next generation of both great Indigenous authors and artists. Indigenous Arts & Stories has earned large scale support from the Indigenous arts and literary community, including those that comprise the patrons and advisory committee. More than 3,000 emerging Indigenous writers and artists from every province and territory in Canada have participated in the contest since 2005.
The program is organized by Historica Canada, the largest independent organization devoted to enhancing awareness of Canadian history and citizenship. For more information, visit http://HistoricaCanada.ca. …”

“…Arts & récits autochtones (anciennement le Concours de rédaction et d’arts pour autochtones) est né en 2005 du succès de Our Story: Aboriginal Voices on Canada’s Past, publié par DoubleDay Canada.
Dans cet ouvrage, neuf grands auteurs autochtones provenant de partout au pays, dont Tantoo Cardinal, Tom King et Drew Hayden Taylor, ont rédigé une nouvelle sur un épisode déterminant de l’histoire autochtone. Depuis lors, le concours est devenu l’épreuve de rédaction la plus importante et la plus identifiable qui soit destinée à la jeunesse autochtone du Canada. Il a obtenu l’appui à grande échelle des membres des milieux artistiques et littéraires autochtones, dont les membres d’honneur et du comité consultatif. Depuis 2005, plus de 3 000 écrivains et artistes autochtones émergents de tous les territoires et les provinces du Canada ont participé au concours.
En 2010, Historica Canada (anciennement l’Institut Historica-Dominion) a annoncé l’expansion de ce concours. Cette expansion rend le concours accessible à un nouvel auditoire de jeunes Autochtones : ceux qui, au lieu d’écrire, s’expriment par la peinture, par le dessin et par la photographie. Nous croyons que l’enrichissement du concours donne naissance à une nouvelle génération de grands auteurs et de grands artistes autochtones.
Le programme est organisé par Historica Canada, le principal organisme indépendant dont la mission consiste à mieux sensibiliser la population à l’histoire et à la citoyenneté canadiennes. Pour tout complément d’information, veuillez consulter le site à l’adresse HistoricaCanada.ca….”
