Since its inception in 1999 Kids’ APT has become a key component of the Gallery’s programming for children and families. The program continues to engage young visitors with the ideas and work of contemporary artists from Australia, Asia and the Pacific through active participation in interactive installations, hands-on and multimedia activities. These projects enrich young visitors’ knowledge of this culturally diverse region and enable children and families to explore the ways in which artists reflect their culture, beliefs and ideas.

For ‘The 8th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art’ (APT8), the Children’s Art Centre will present APT8 Kids from 21 November 2015 until 10 April 2106). APT8 Kids will include a number of interactive artist projects exploring exhibition themes from APT8, including the transformation of everyday objects, performance and the body in art.
