Play a part in constructing an interactive media art puzzle!
Award winning artist Betty Sargeant has created a beautiful new community inclusive media artwork, The Playground.
Over the festival week sculptural pieces will be hidden around the State Library Victoria and you’re invited to help find them, bring them into the MKW17 Festival Hub and connect them with a large collectively constructed interactive sculpture.
If you want to be even more involved then come to The Playground workshops where you can play a bigger part in this media and creative technologies project.
- Workshop 1 - Tuesday 5.30pm - 6.30pm (must register)
- Workshop 2 - Saturday 4pm - 5pm (must register)
Whether you are highly experienced or have no knowledge in this area we encourage you to be involved. This event is for seniors, university students, children (10+), and individuals who have an interest in knowledge, art, design and creative technologies.
