What does electricity look like in your life?
In celebration of National Electricity Month 2021, the Canadian Electricity Association (CEA) launched a cross-country art project, titled Spark of Imagination. This project featured the creative artwork of more than 80 Canadian kids from every province and territory, and was recognized as an opportunity to reflect on the role of electricity in our everyday lives.
While a great number of canvases featured the classic lightbulb, others explored assets that ensure electricity generation and supply – including wind turbines, hydro dams, secondary wires and solar panels. In a year of virtual school and virtual meetings, kids also considered the role of electricity in communications, and its impact on phones, iPads, and computers. More than ever before, electricity has allowed kids to stay connected to their loved ones throughout 2021.
This collection of artworks will be featured in CEA’s national office as we imagine a cleaner, brighter future.
