WHAT

Please note that this is a week long event.

The Urban Aboriginal Healthy Living-Kids program (UAHL-KP) was developed to focus on providing education on healthy eating and to increase physical fitness levels for Aboriginal children and families. The program is unique because it implements culture based activities to enhance the well-being and traditional knowledge of urban Aboriginal children and their families.

UAHL-KP organized the Living a Good Life art contest and exhibition that focuses on the objectives of the program to promote healthy lifestyle choices. The kids were asked to submit artwork that depicted what they think it means to live a healthy lifestyle. The contest was open to local urban native youth between 4-17 years of age. The grand finale of this art project will be the exhibition and opening reception.

The contest judges are well-known Indigenous artists including Christi Belcourt, Mark Anthony Jacobson, John Fadden and Jay Bell Redbird who generously volunteered their time to participate in the project
