The World Wall: A Vision of the Future Without Fear is a traveling installation mural, conceived by artist, Judy Baca. It examines contemporary issues of global importance: war, peace, cooperation, environment, interdependence and spiritual growth. The World Wall is currently made up of nine 10 ft. by 30 ft. portable panels. In its completed state, the mural will include 14 works - 7 works by artists from different nations, and 7 works led by Baca. Currently, Finland, Russia, Israel/Palestine and Mexico are represented and now Canada.

Canada is the latest country to add their contribution entitled: ?The Inuit Send the World a Canary? by lead artist Tania Godoroja Pearse, which speaks to the issues of global warming and the exploitation of natural resources, their profound and uncontrolled destruction of Canadian life and landscapes. 

 ?The Arctic is much more than polar bears and seals. What is happening today in the Arctic is the future of the rest of the world.  In one lifetime, we Inuit have seen our physical world transform, the very ground beneath our feet shift dramatically. Inuit are the ground-truthers of climate change.?
