Featured in the gallery below, as well as the slide deck gallery at the top of our landing page, are images from our first "Inspire Challenge":  visual art focused on the theme of "Hope" in response to the global COVID-19 pandemic. And if you need a little more inspiration, check out An Artist's Perspective, by Port Hope artist Christine Benson, in our Hot Topics section! 

What's next?  We're launching another challenge for our June/July issue!  The theme is "The Face of Courage" and  we're expanding our challenge to include creative writing, poetry and music, as well as visual art.  Remember, Inspire is a safe and supportive space to submit your work and we'd love to hear from you!  We can't publish everything, but we'll try to include as much as possible from young artists everywhere. The deadline for submissions is Monday, May 25th, 2020.
