Happy Canada Day Kind and Creative Canadians!

Welcome to the Yours to Discover Colouring and Activity Book, inspired by a creative and social impact collaboration between Digital Artisan, EEPMON and Kind Village, a Canadian female-led social impact technology firm.

The artwork and activities come from a special project that we worked on for Ingenium. We spent over a year in three museum vaults and interviewed staff and community members to learn about what inspires them and the issues they care most about. The mural and accompanying online experience we created provide a rich visual narrative for you to explore the intersections of human innovation and ingenuity driven by the curiosity to advance science, technology, and social impact – past, present, and future.

Art is a wonderful means to inspire and create social impact, innovation, and community engagement. Now more than ever we need to work together to make a difference and build innovative solutions to support our neighbours and communities. We hope our activity book inspires you to build your future. Please share your stories and impact ideas with us on social media using the hashtags #MakeAnImpact and #BuildTheFuture.

If you happen to visit Ottawa, do check out the Canada Science and Technology Museum to see the full 100x20 foot artwork in real life! Also, you can visit the interactive mural online.

Did you know

Did you know that a Canadian named Willard S. Boyle invented a small sensor called a charged-coupled device (CCD) in 1969 that makes digital photography possible today?

The (CCD) was used to build the first digital camera and it can found in almost all areas of photography, including medical and scientific applications. Digital photography helps us understand each other and share stories that need no words. Sometimes stories teach us something new, sometimes they warm our hearts.
