Voices On Canvas Inc provides youth with the platform to develop essential communication and civic skills, fostering expressive dialogue through the medium of art.
Voices On Canvas Inc is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Our goal is to bring people together through the medium of art as they explore social equity, social justice and community identity. Youth are given a voice through art creating a dialogue between them and adults to discuss what social issues are important. These youth stakeholders partner with adults in improving health and safety, accessibility, sustainability and economic vitality in their communities as they take part in VOCI’s various youth engagement projects.
Voices On Canvas Inc was inspired by the 1989 United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. It was the most widely ratified human rights treaty in history calling upon all of us to recognize the rights of children, to ensure that every child has a happy childhood and enjoys the same rights and freedoms that all individuals are entitled to. Article 12 states that every child should have the right to express views freely in all matters affecting him or her.
