Words of Hope Art Project

What: From February 15th to April 1st, 2012 hundreds of Canadians submitted inspiring words to families affected by childhood cancer through Childhood Cancer Canada`s (CCC) National Awareness Campaign. Michael Martchenko, the celebrity illustrator behind The Paper Bag PrincessThomas' Snowsuit and dozens other children's books by the legendary author Robert Munsch, has created a special public work of art that pays tribute to the thousands of Canadian families living with childhood cancer.

"Words of Hope" is an art project created by Michael Martchenko that was inspired by these encouraging words submitted by Canadians from coast to coast. Featuring many of Martchenko's most recognizable characters, the giant child-friendly artwork will be exhibited to Torontonians to raise awareness of the issues facing families living with childhood cancer, in partnership with the Toronto-based charity Childhood Cancer Canada

When: The Words of Hope artwork will be exhibited from May 26 - June 3, 2012.

Where: CBC - Barbara Frum Atrium, 250 Front Street West, Toronto
