Summer Holiday Program
Museum of Brisbane
The fun kicks off with a couple of festive-themed workshops where children can let their imagination run wild while creating a Christmas ornament, or a decorative Rockin’ Wreath using sparkles, sequins and repurposed materials.
Families can get in on the fun by taking the High Rotation Family Tour, where they’ll be immersed in the past 30 years of Brisbane’s vibrant music scene. Drawing on this inspiration, kids can decorate their own Custom Band Patches, which can then be ironed onto clothing (make sure you BYO jacket, shirt ot tote bag) in true rock star fashion.
Learn how to create an awesome music-related fanzine out of paper, glue and scissors as part of the Kids Fanzine Project with Jeremy Staples, and unleash your inner beat during the Rhythm and Drum Making workshop. Those really wanting to let loose will love the Summer Silent Disco, where the whole family can pop on some headphones and bust out the boogie.
Drawing inspiration from the New Woman exhibition, participants can print their own bold textile banner in the Screen Print Wall Banner workshop, or express their hopes and visions for a better future by creating their own mini protest banners as part of the Pocket Placard activity.
Need to know – Cost and age suitability varies between sessions, and some activities require bookings.
