My Story

The mission of the CCGSD Our History Initiative is to provide a platform to the 2SLGBTQIA+ community in Canada to share their journeys and mark their place in Canada’s history. Each one of us has a story to share and our goal is to shed light on these remarkable stories.

If you are a member or ally of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community, we want to help bring your story to all Canadians through this initiative. To submit your stories, follow the instructions below.

All submissions must include a Dropbox or Google Drive link to download a SINGLE folder containing the following:

– Single page MS Word document containing a short exhibition title, artist’s city, and province, and an artist statement with a word count of 300 max.

– 12 high-resolution images, 8.5 x 11 inch at 300dpi

Optional information:

– Name & URL to personal/organization website

We value all submissions and appreciate each individual/organization’s journey. However due to the volume of submissions we receive, our in-house committee is only able to select a handful of projects that can be publish online and made available for display with our education & community partners. We will notify you by email if your exhibition is selected for display.

Please use a service like Dropbox or Google Drive to share your submission folder and paste the link to download the folder in the field below.
