About the event

The Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) Children’s Art Centre and Regional Services are delighted to present APT10 Kids on Tour for children and families in regional and remote Queensland.

APT10 Kids on Tour has been developed to coincide with ‘The 10th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art’ (APT10) and APT10 Kids, on display at QAGOMA from 4 December 2021 to 25 April 2022. This program will enable children to explore and experience a range of contemporary art styles and approaches from Australia, Asia and the Pacific through activities celebrating diversity and community, and encouraging mindful contemplation.

APT10 Kids on Tour includes activities created by the Children’s Art Centre in collaboration with artists Shannon Novak (Aotearoa New Zealand), Phuong Ngo (Australia), Syagini Ratna Wulan (Indonesia), Jamilah Haji (Thailand), Gidree Bawlee Foundation of Arts (Bangladesh) and Vipoo Srivilasa (Thailand/Australia).

Since 1998, the Gallery has collaborated with more than 290 Australian and international contemporary artists. The Children’s Art Centre is a leader in developing interactive projects, activities and publications that engage children with contemporary cultures, artists and ideas.

The Kids on Tour program provides this content free of charge to communities throughout Queensland, allowing venues in regional and remote areas the opportunity to present innovative hands-on workshops for local audiences.

QAGOMA gratefully acknowledges the Tim Fairfax Family Foundation’s generous support of APT10 Kids on Tour.
