Skylines and Storytimes

Where: Family and school workshops in various locations throughout 2021.

This exciting child-led program explores children’s perception of their city as it grows and changes. Asking the questions, what is it like to live in the City of Melton? 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. 

Artistic partners Playable Streets will guide students through an exciting range of practical online and in-school activities in this year-long project.

The project culminates in an interactive exhibition launched at CS Gallery during Children's Week, in October 2021.

Programs Available:

February - March | Submit Artwork to our Online Gallery
Children can participate in submitting their drawings of favourite local places to an online gallery, which Playable Streets artists will adapt into an interactive online artwork connecting students’ imagery with imagery of other children across the City.

Grab a worksheet, draw your favourite local place and submit your artwork.
