Mélange Creative Arts Journal

About the Journal

Mélange Creative Arts Journal is intended to provide an opportunity for youth to meet at the intersections of our food system; exploring food, culture and their personal histories through a variety of visual and print media.

Our first issue was launched January 13, 2016.

Call for Submissions for Volume 3

The Toronto Youth Food Policy Council is currently accepting creative submissions for Mélange Creative Arts Journal, Volume 3 on the theme of Seeding Justice and Deepening our Roots. 

This year, we are looking for artwork from youth (30 and under) that explores food justice, food access, family, ancestry, migration, familial recipes, and community. 

We accept all forms of print media including: photography, paintings, collage, poetry, flash fiction, short essays, recipes, and more – anything and everything that calls us to laugh, mourn, learn, question, and/or celebrate our respective and collective roots and the worlds that bloom from them.

Submissions close January 15, 2021 at 11:59 PM.
