Young Artists and Authors Showcase

Get ready to embark on an artistic journey that envisions a resilient and sustainable urban future!

We are thrilled to announce that the 2024 Young Artists and Authors Showcase theme will be “ClimateScape: Resilient Cities for Tomorrow’s Climate.” This theme not only aligns with the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda but also resonates deeply with Sister Cities International’s commitment to fostering cooperation among cities.

We invite young artists and authors to delve into the pressing challenges of climate change and its profound impact on cities. The theme encourages students to unleash their creativity and showcases the transformative power of resilient cities that can adapt and flourish in the face of a changing climate.

Through breathtaking artworks and captivating narratives, we aim to vividly depict urban landscapes that embrace eco-consciousness, inclusivity, and forward-thinking solutions. From rooftop gardens and green infrastructures to diverse communities united in sustainability, “ClimateScape” celebrates the resilience of our cities while fostering a brighter, more sustainable tomorrow.

Join us on this artistic expedition as we not only emphasize the significance of Sustainable Development Goal 11: Making cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable but also emphasize the crucial role of cooperation among sister cities. Let your imagination soar as you shape the vision of a climate-resilient future, strengthened through collaboration and solidarity among urban communities worldwide!

The 2023 Classic Art Showcase Winner is “For the Future” by artist Diana Lopez with Scottsdale Sister Cities Association.
