About this Event

FREE DRAWING workshops: Friday 2nd, Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th October 2020

Amid a year packed with climate change, bushfires, protests, and pandemics, we have a series of creative events that focus on a greener, brighter future.

Due to our Covid safety planning, we can only have one adult accompany each booked child. If you have other siblings that are not booked you will not be able to stay and observe the program, you will have to sign your booked child in and come back at the finish time. Please book a ticket for all children and adults taking part in the project.

All sessions have a limited number of participants to ensure safe social distancing.
