Now is the Time - Kids on Tour
The Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art Children’s Art Centre and Regional Services is delighted to present ‘Now is the Time Kids on Tour’.
These free hands-on art-marking activities have been developed by the Children’s Art Centre in collaboration with artist Raquel Ormella.
Ormella is an artist with a diverse creative practice that includes video, installation, drawings, and zines. She has an ongoing interest in the many ways that contemporary art can encourage processes of self-examination, political consciousness and social action.
In first developing this project, Ormella was inspired by children around the world calling for awareness and action on climate change. ‘Now is the Time’ is about engaging our youngest audiences through art on the most important contemporary issues related to our environment.
‘Now is the Time’ is about young creative minds engaging with art and expressing their views on the important contemporary issues that are impacting the environment across Queensland and around the World.
