NWAC Youth Art Contest

Enter this contest and help make a difference by raising awareness about HIV! The Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) is launching an art contest to gather artwork for an HIV prevention cinema forum toolkit entitled TIPI Dreams: Transforming Indigenous Power Inside Out. The toolkit is being developed in collaboration with the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and is intended to assist users in planning and delivering community sessions with at-risk Aboriginal women. The toolkit contains a facilitators’ guide with instructions, activities and an educational video.

The TIPI Dreams toolkit is the direct result of the Removing the Barriers and Improving Access to Culturally Relevant, Gender Specific HIV/AIDS Prevention Information among hard to reach,  at-risk Aboriginal Women in Canada project.


Open to Aboriginal youth ages 13 – 29 years. Individuals are allowed multiple submissions. Entries can be created by teams or individuals; however, only one prize will be awarded per winning entry.
Deadline for submissions is Midnight (ET)  on Monday, July 8th 2013.
