The 2021-2022 winners!
For the 2021-2022 Scholarships, the committee chose 2 winners from a number of very worthy entries.
For Visual Arts – Julia Belleghem
Julia attended Erin District High School finishing her grade 12 year in the Independent Arts Emphasis Course. She has volunteered at the Milton Sportsplex and Orton Community Association as well as keeping busy with own commissions and digital artwork sales.
Julia has been accepted at Algonquin College in the Illustration and Concept Art Program. She hopes it will allow her to share her ideas and inspirations and to use her creativity to its fullest.
For Visual Arts – Diana SiIla
Diana attended Humberview Secondary School showing initiative, talent and leadership. Despite a difficult year during pandemic shutdowns, Diana helped design, develop and create an incredible mural for the Visual Arts Hallway.
Diana has been accepted in to OCADu and will take the Cross Disciplinary Art: Life Studies with hopes to become a Tattoo artist with a secondary goal of fashion design and possibly education.
Congratulations to Julia and Diana!
We acknowledge that the land on which we gather, and on which the Region of Peel operates, is part of the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. For thousands of years, Indigenous peoples inhabited and cared for this land. In particular we acknowledge the territory of the Ani-shinabek, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee and Ojibway/Chippewa peoples; the land that is home to the Metis; and most recently, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation who are direct descendants of the Mississaugas of the Credit.
We are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land, and by doing so, give our respect to its first inhabitants.
