Valley Earth Day Arts (VEDA)

Invitation: People of all ages in the Ottawa Valley who are concerned about our environment are invited to create banners, posters and other means of expressing hopes and fears about CLIMATE MATTERS. Following on last year’s successful schools’ and children’s event, the Kitchissippi-Ottawa Valley Chapter (KOV) of the national Council of Canadians invites a broader public to engage in Earth Day activities Saturday April 22, so there is time to join in.

This project offers a multitude of opportunities for exploration and reflection. Adults, youth and children can present their conclusions or feelings through the Earth Day 2023 theme. Artwork can become a voice for change in local events during Earth Day Week (April 16-21) and will be front and centre at the main parade planned for Saturday April 22.

Please let the organizers know by Friday March 31, 2023 if you are interested in participating so they can find ways to support you in this project. For more information and suggestions on how to make banners, posters and other creative expressions, please visit: For more information please email  or phone Ken 705.478.6060 or Diane at 613.625.2200.
