We have powerful dreams. Our collective imagination is a source of hope, direction and inspiration to unlock a prosperous future. The Wish 150 mosaic is a national initiative created to bring together our communities and inspire for a better future through art and color. The Wish 150 Yukon Mosaic brings together works made by 14 different artists from across the Yukon Territory, to form a diverse mosaic in the shape of a Raven, the Yukon territorial bird. The strength of diversity is projected through various artists, aspirations, cultures, and mediums. The artists creatively express their identity, the aesthetics of their community, their perspectives and wishes for Canada in the next 150 years. Now it's your turn, what's your wish for Canada's 150?
