A kaleidoscope of colour and ideas, What is Different? is a celebration of the uninhibited creativity of Brisbane’s young people in the face of crisis.
Step into a new perspective on our collective experience in this interactive FREE exhibition full of innovation, humour and heart at the Museum of Brisbane.
When schools closed during Queensland’s lockdown life became very different for everyone, especially for young people. Children were at home more than usual, routines were different, playdates were cancelled and lessons moved from the classroom to the home. As the coronavirus pandemic began to unfold, the Gallery of Children’s Art (GoCA) asked children across Queensland: “what is different?”. From kindergartens to primary schools, this question prompted students to reflect and respond to their changing global, local and personal situations through art, helping them to express their ideas and emotions.
In this exhibition, explore the incredibly insightful and at times humorous works from local children. Families can create their own digital artworks using the touch screens in the exhibition and watch as the artwork comes to life on the wall via a projector.
