Come on an Artist Educator led multisensory exhibition expedition!

Have you ever imagined what an artwork might taste like? What it might say if it could speak? How would it move if it came to life?

Let your imagination run wild during this NEW program for families! This inclusive experience celebrates thinking and seeing in new ways, encouraging storytelling, experimentation and collaboration along the way. Connect with artworks via fun gallery based activities and rummage through a collection of artist-made tactile objects, constructed with unusual natural and man-made materials.

Support for family members with physical, intellectual, learning and sensory access requirements will be available during the program.

Tuesday 4 October, 10.30 – 11.30am
Free, Bookings essential. Places limited
For children ages 4-12 and their grownups!
