OUR YOUNG MOB Exhibition Open 19 August

Welcome to Children's Artspace: a place for all children, students, and families to come and share ideas and engage in art created by South Australian children.

With a brand-new exhibition for each school term, Children's Artspace provides a safe space for discussions around important issues and big topics facing the kids of today. Artists for the four exhibitions in 2022 have been selected with the assistance of Adelaide Central School of Art from their pool of graduates.

There will also be workshops, interactive experiences, and performances throughout 2022 that accompany the exhibitions.

Children's Artspace is also connecting South Australian children with art experiences all around the world, with online workshops planned with galleries in Hamada, Japan, and New York City, USA. Other galleries and museums around Australia and the world will provide opportunities for fun and engaging learning through play and discovery.
