Participants and Awards
All current UFV students were invited to design and submit original posters to the 7th Biannual pARTicipate Poster Competition, this year’s theme is It’s Possible! Cash prizes will be awarded to the winning students, and selected entries have been be posted as part of a digital exhibition on the S’eliyemetaxwtexw Art Gallerywebsite.
The pARTicipate Poster Competition project has been running bi-annually since 2009 with its aim to foster imagination, criticality, visual thinking, graphic design skills and to promote social awareness and activism.
The 7th pARTicipate Poster Competition’s theme It’s Possible! is motivated by Canada’s National Career Month – celebrated each November – but extends this dialogue beyond the original month-long focus.
To promote and advance the agenda of achieving employment goals, we are seeking posters that represent an examination of the role of work in creating an accessible, equitable and hopeful world. Students may want to consider what is possible if work or career took into consideration factors that impact the future and well-being of society.
