At ArtPlay: A fun panel discussion with adults and children.

Artists: By Kids For Kids Collective 

Are you going to be a parent when you grow up? Is the idea of having kids a wise one or a big mistake? Are there too many children or not enough? Is it selfish or selfless to have children? Hear opinions from both sides as kids explain why they’re a lot of work and adults talk about why they’re very necessary.

This is a fun, playful, and provocative one-off event to celebrate the big ideas from the By Kids for Kids Collective.

The By Kids for Kids Collective is a group of 9 children who have been working together at ArtPlay to develop ‘Don’t Panic, Everything is Urgent’, a season of art experiences specifically designed by children for children.

  • This session will be Auslan Interpreted.
  • Please contact us if you need to book a Companion Card ticket.

Age: 8+ years
