Powerkids: Little Artists at Play

UPCYCLE By Verena Curr

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse and Imaginary Theatre

REMINDER: There is no Powerkids sessions over school holidays. We’ll be back for UPCYCLE on Tuesday 8 October.

PLEASE NOTE: This session of Powerkids: Little Artist at Play will be held in the Graffiti Room and Mosquito Foyer, not on the Turbine Platform. Please follow the signs in venue.

Reclaimed and reinvented objects take on a fun new meaning with this activation for Powerkids: Little Artists at Play by artist and educator, Verena Curr.

UPCYCLE is a weekly pop-up play installation for children under five and their families to be inspired by the possibilities of everyday materials through sensory play that evokes natural environments. Pass through a bottle garden maze and tip toe over a raindrop pathway into a wave of bubbles. Jump, pop and dance together before settling down in a cosy igloo to watch, relax and play.

UPCYCLE provides visitors with opportunities to meet, make, move, listen, and explore together. With a focus on environmental sustainability, UPCYCLE features many consciously sourced materials, so as to give them this second playful life.

Powerkids: Little Artists At Play is powered by BMD
