Justice, Art & Youth* in Action Initiative (#JAYA) Engagement Survey Submit Your Ideas to Advance Justice and Peace in Nova Scotia
We invite you to let us know what an action plan to enhance safety, well-being, reconciliation, and rehabilitation in communities across Nova Scotia should look like. Your recommendations will help the Michaëlle Jean Foundation, the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia and Youth Art Connection to draft a three-year action plan that communities across the province will be able to use to further advance justice and peace.

Since 2013, the Michaëlle Jean Foundation (FMJF), the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia and Youth Art Connection (YAC) have worked with community members and organizations to empower diverse Nova Scotia youth, particularly from Black, Indigenous, LGBTQIAP2S+, and other marginalized backgrounds, to use their creativity to transform quality of life, at the local and provincial levels. The work has placed emphasis on using arts to address direct challenges facing the province, particularly in the area of peace and justice.

When the word YOUTH is used, it refers to people aged 30 and under.

Are you a resident of Nova Scotia?
Which part of Nova Scotia are you from?
Please select a Justice Pillar Objective(s) that you would like to address (you may select as many objectives as you would like. The following four priorities were identified through three years of consulting with people across the province).
How should the action plan achieve the objective(s) you selected (for example, create more opportunities for Non-Indigenous people to learn from Indigenous peoples about the Indian Residential Schools).
Your answer
How can communities, particularly youth, use the arts to support what you are proposing?
Your answer
How can young artists challenge stigma and stereotypes through art?
Your answer
What supports do young artists require to do this work? (Supports can be anything--physical or non-physical--an artist or organization needs to make art or involve others in making art)
Your answer
How can the 3-year action offer support to young artists?
Your answer
How do we make these supports easily accessible? (A lot of support is not accessible due to lack of education, transportation, facilities, opportunities, funds, job, etc. How do we make it easier for anyone to access?)
Your answer
How does supporting youth-led art make a difference in our communities?
Your answer
Please let us know what you would like to see the action achieve (for example: a drop in intimate partner violence)
Your answer
Who do we need to hear from and involve in implementing the action plan? What are the ideas, artists, and organizations making a change in Nova Scotia? What projects are they working on? How can they be involved and supported?
Your answer
Do you have any other thoughts or ideas about what the action could achieve? (We would like to see young artists well supported in their efforts to advance peace and justice. Please help us imagine what that support can look like!)
