Qantas Founders Museum CEO Tony Martin says the Museum was looking forward to the many activities included in Kids on Tour Program in 2018.
“The Kids on Tour ‘Me, Myselfie and I’ is a program of exciting free hands-on activities encouraging children to explore ideas around self and identity will tour to 90 venues across Queensland and the Torres Strait from January to April 2018, including Qantas Founders Museum on 16 and 18 January 2018.”
‘Me, Myselfie and I’ will visit a record number of regional venues, art galleries, libraries and community art centres, including Barcaldine, Cairns, Cape York, Cherbourg, Cunnamulla, Mornington Island, Palm Island and the Scenic Rim.
QAGOMA Director Chris Saines CNZM says the program ‘Me, Myselfie and I’ encouraged children of all ages to explore ideas beyond their physical appearance and to think about how they express their emotions, personality, memories and experiences through images, sound, spoken word and movement.
“The activities have been developed by QAGOMA in collaboration with Australian and international artists featured in the Gallery’s Collection, including Angela Tiatia (New Zealand/Australia), Ayaz Jokhio (Pakistan), Wit Pimkanchanapong (Thailand), Miloš Tomić (Serbia) and Phil Dadson (New Zealand).”
This Kids on Tour program coincides with the exhibition ‘Me, Myselfie and I’ at GOMA’s Children’s Art Centre in Brisbane.
Kids on Tour is offered as a free program to regional Queensland communities through the Gallery’s Regional Services department.
