      Call for Athlete Art Submissions

      Here is an opportunity for our athletes to display some of their artistic talents! Kim Samuel and the Samuel Family Foundation are putting together a Symposium that will take place in Toronto from October 1 to 3, with the theme “Overcoming Isolation and Deepening Social Connectedness”. Speaking at the Symposium are Special Olympics Chair Tim Shriver and athletes Loretta Claiborne and Matthew Williams.

       

      As a component of the symposium, there is an art competition for which an invitation is being extended to Special Olympics athletes and unified partners (between the ages of 14-29) to submit art in keeping with the theme of “moment of inclusion” – reflecting on a time, place or experience when the artist has felt a sense of inclusion or belonging.  The art itself can be any medium (photo, painting, sketch), and winners (with a chaperone) will be awarded a travel bursary to attend the Symposium in Toronto.  


      Winners will also be invited to speak about their artwork during an evening exhibit at Evergreen Brickworks on Wednesday, October 1st (5:45-8:30pm).


      A runner-up prize of a digital camera will also be awarded!

      Please submit your artwork with a title and description along with your name, age and city you are from by Friday, September 12th, 2014 in one of the following ways:
