This exciting child-led program explores children’s perception of their city as it grows and changes.
Asking the questions like "what is it like to live in the City of Melton? and "why is it your home?", children are encouraged to explore what they treasure most about where they live and learn about each other’s experience.
As part of the project, our artistic partners, Playable Streets, will guide students through an exciting range of practical online activities.
This year-long project culminates in an interactive exhibition launched at CS Gallery during Children’s Week happening in October 2021, to which all participants will be invited to attend and see their work on show.
Submit your artwork to our online gallery!
Throughout December 2020, January and February 2021, children residing in the City of Melton are invited to submit their own drawings of their favourite local places that will then be displayed on our online gallery.
Playable Streets' artists will then adapt all submitted artwork into an interactive online artwork piece, connecting students’ imagery with imagery of other children across the City.
Submissions close Friday 2 April, 2021 (we have extended the date!)
