The Matchstick is Amnesty Canada’s biannual Arts & Lit magazine – a publication created by and for youth. 

 Exploring the multi-faceted human rights landscape from the perspective of young human rights defenders, activists, advocates and artists — this platform intends to raise awareness of human rights violations, to close the gap between awareness and action through art, and to invite young artists and human rights defenders to meld their activism with their craft. 

Call for Submissions open now!
