Colorful Paint Splatter


Virtual Student Gallery


Virtual Student Gallery

Art4Action is an annual international, virtual art gallery hosted by the ​Centre for Global Education. The goal of Art4Action is to encourage ​creativity from young people, to display their thoughts, ideas, and ​emotions about global issues related to the UN SDGs. We want children ​to unleash their creativity on an unsuspecting world through paint, collage, ​sculpture, photography, or any other medium of their choice!

Current exhibits include:

#Art4Climate: As part of our #DECARBONIZE Program, art is chosen ​annually for the UN Climate Conference. You could have your art on ​display at the world's largest global climate meeting!

#Art4Biodiversity: As part of our #ENN Program, art is chosen annually for ​the UN Biodiversity Conference. Highlight your love of biodiversity in your ​country - on a global stage!

#Art4Equity: As part of our AP Afro-Canadian Diaspora Seminar course, ​art is shared with schools across the country and around the world - in ​celebration of diverse cultures from BIPOC communities everywhere!

Show us what art activism means to you and your community.

You have important ideas to offer on global issues.

You can influence the conversations and priorities.

You can impact real change on action.

Share your ART with us!

This Month’s Art Highlights

The Node Tree

“It refers to the condition of the unbridled search ​for technology in the midst of various options and ​the search for truth, for human rights, for the ​identity that must be rescued in the face of life's ​unknowns.”

Maggot Sausages?

"Humans were once together with nature - we had ​trees as staff, swans as friends, and eagles for ​wings. However, our endless desires shielded us ​from seeing our oneness. Our eyes are gone. In the ​end, it's just one blind man to another, telling each ​other to eat maggot sausages to save the earth."

Jasmine Yao | 17 | Canada

"If the world is so beautiful, why did we ​ruin it?"
