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. There will be no Powerkids session on Tue 19 and Tue 26 November due to Wonderland Festival.

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.

A free half hourly program, children and parents can lie on the soft rugs and look up at the creative canopy above, or take a tactile adventure around the space, touching and feeling their way through the space and discover the different levels of the canopy.
