The Creative Citizen Awards is an event organized by La Connexional in collaboration with the African Canadian Performing Arts (ACPA) foundation. It celebrates the creativity and innovation of individuals and groups who have made significant contributions to their communities through their work, projects and initiatives.
These individuals and groups have demonstrated exceptional creativity and innovation in their work, and have made a positive impact on their communities through their efforts.
The selection committee for the first edition of the Creative Citizen Awards was made up of 5 members of La Connexional's executive team. The awardees were chosen based on 3 primary criteria: the number of nominations they received (15%), the quality of their work (55%), and the impact their work has had on the community (30%). Please note that team executives were not allowed to nominate a creative or receive an award, and any nominations for a La Connexional team executive were automatically disqualified.
In addition to the awardees, there were also honorable mentions given to those who were nominated for the Creative Citizen Awards. These individuals and groups may not have been selected as awardees, but their work and contributions to their communities were still recognized and celebrated.
The Creative Citizen Awards is an important gathering that recognizes and celebrates the contributions of individuals and groups who are making a positive difference in their communities through creativity and innovation. We are proud to present the 2022 awardees and honorable mentions. We hope that their stories will encourage others to make a positive impact in their lives.
