In conjunction with Unnerved: The New Zealand Project, the Children's Art Centre presented the work of three contemporary New Zealand artists who each have a unique view of the world around them.

Situated on Level 1 of the Children’s Art Centre, parents and children were able to view the playful collages of Jill Kennedy’s animated three part New Educational Series, Alex Dron’s hilarious short animations starring a red-haired soccer player named FOT, and Michael Stevenson’s 2004 film Making for Sheppey where the artist builds a raft using only found materials and the local know-how of British Sea Scouts.
