Now is the Time Kids on Tour

01 Jan 2021 – 30 Apr 2021
ON TOUR | Free

The Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art Children’s Art Centre and Regional Services is delighted to present ‘Now is the Time Kids on Tour’. This free program will run concurrently with the QAGOMA Children’s Art Centre exhibition ‘Now is the Time’, enabling Queensland communities to enjoy key elements of the original exhibition at their local venue. The activities were developed by the Children’s Art Centre in collaboration with artist Raquel Ormella.

Ormella is an artist with a diverse creative practice that includes video, installation, drawings, and zines. She has an ongoing interest in the many ways that contemporary art can encourage processes of self-examination, political consciousness and social action.

In first developing this project, Ormella was inspired by children around the world calling for awareness and action on climate change. ‘Now is the Time’ is about engaging our youngest audiences through art on the most important contemporary issues related to our environment.

‘Now is the Time’ is about young creative minds engaging with art and expressing their views on the important contemporary issues that are impacting the environment across Queensland and around the World.

The program will run from January until April 2021 with art supplies and artist activities being sent to venues around Queensland and the Torres Strait.
