With a brand-new exhibition for each school term, Children's Artspace provides a safe space for discussions around important issues and big ideas facing young people today.

Adelaide Festival Centre works with local visual artists who collaborate with children to create new artwork and unique experiences. Each exhibition provides young people with the opportunity to engage with diverse arts practices, learn new techniques, and ask challenging questions. The Children’s Artspace run both in-school and in-gallery workshops and produce curated professional exhibitions of children’s artwork.

The exhibition program responds to Adelaide Festival Centre produced festivals including DreamBIG Children’s Festival, Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Adelaide Guitar Festival, OzAsia Festival and First Nations programming.

Funded by the Adelaide Festival Centre Foundation, Children’s Artspace is actively facilitating local, national, and international partnerships and is run in collaboration with Adelaide Festival Centre’s centrED program with support from the South Australian Department for Education.

Children’s Artspace welcomes little people, big ideas.
