About the contest

KAIROS wants to lift up the artistic work of young activists. We are looking for original artwork that shares a message of justice, peace and hope – artwork that will help us as a movement and a community embrace this kairos moment and lead us into action towards the just and sustainable world we want to build. 

The 2022 Contest will take place in the lead up to the 27th United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, Conference of the Parties (UNFCCC COP 27), so we are asking contestants to consider what message they would like to send to Canadian politicians, the people of Canada, KAIROS global partners, or KAIROS member churches and organizations. Choose an audience and a message and portray your message in the most creative and engaging way that you can.
