SA Refugee Week Youth Poster Exhibition Now Open

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.

SA Refugee Week Youth Poster Exhibition

The Youth Poster Exhibition is presented by Australian Migrant Resource Centre and Children’s Artspace as part of SA Refugee Week 2022.

The project is in its twelfth year and invites young people studying in primary, secondary and tertiary institutions to produce a poster that celebrates the themes surrounding the United Nations International Refugee Convention.

These themes include multiculturalism, human rights, cultural diversity, anti-racism and the welcoming of refugees into Australia, as well as how refugees become part of, and contribute towards, the Australian ‘family’. This year, 50 schools have participated by sending in posters addressing the themes.

The exhibition will be open from Wednesday 22 June to Saturday 30 July.

For further information, please visit the AMRC website.
