Developing art for children

Part of the Kinderling Conversation for parents. Weekdays 12pm-1pm.

Mon 22 June 2015

9 mins

Since 1998 the QAGOMA Children’s Art Centre has collaborated with more than 170 Australian and international contemporary artists to create interactive exhibitions and programs for young audiences and their families. Research trials are vital in gauging children’s responses during the development of each project.

Here we chat about the three-way conversation between the Gallery, artist and child and how this informs the development of each project.

GUEST: Tamsin Cull, Senior Program Officer of the Children's Art Centre at GOMA
