Have you ever wondered what the world looks like through your children's eyes? 

The Hear Me See Me exhibition is calling for children across Queensland to submit artwork of all forms that does just that; capturing how they see love, joy, trust, family, hope, and safety.

Cheryl Vardon from the Queensland Family and Child Commission explains how you can get involved, and what families can expect from the exhibition.

Entries can be made via the QFCC website and last submissions need to be made by 23 July.
