Now is the Time: Kids on Tour offers a range of hands-on art-making activities encouraging children to reflect on climate change and the environment.

Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) Director Chris Saines said ‘Now is the Time: Kids on Tour’ was a project developed by contemporary Australian artist Raquel Ormella in collaboration with QAGOMA.

Now is the Time: Kids on Tour’ invites children to create their own climate change placards, design a bespoke protest T-shirt, vote for what they care about, and share their climate message on collaborative drawing sheets designed by the artist. They can draw inspiration from posters with historical and contemporary protest imagery and watch two videos created by Raquel Ormella with students from Brisbane’s Junction Park State School, in which kids create their own protest song and share their views on climate action.

Family groups of up to 8 people can enjoy the activities together at our hands-on activity stations. All children U13 are to be accompanied by an adult. To keep you safe, activity areas will be supervised and sanitised in line with COVID-19 regulations.
