Powerkids: Little Artists at Play

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse and Imaginary Theatre

LOOK AT ME (until Tue 23 April)

The Turbine Platform transforms into a costume extravaganza for Powerkids in Term 1 for children 5 years and under and their adults. Create your own signature look with a treasure-trove of dress-ups and unique opt-shop finds every little designer will enjoy.

Create your own costume and strut your stuff down the Powerkids runway and get a selfie in front of the photowall. Those not as enthusiastic about dressing up can draw a body outline and design a new and exciting fashion creation. Babies can also join the fun with a washing line of fabrics to mesmerise them.

Like any fashion-forward creators, tag #powerkids19 in your photos to get you on the way to Insta fame.
