‘Me, Myselfie and I on Tour’ arrives 13 January 2018

The ‘Kids on Tour’ program will return to the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum (GRAGM) in 2018 as a FREE Family Fun Day on Saturday 13 January, between 10am and 1pm. 

Children are invited along to participate in the exciting program of specially designed hands-on activities, developed by the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA).  QAGOMA’s Children's Art Centre worked in collaboration with Angela Tiatia (New Zealand / Australia), Ayaz Jokhio (Pakistan) and Wit Pimkanchanapong (Thailand) this year to create the family-friendly program, ‘Me, Myselfie and I on Tour’.

‘Me, Myselfie and I’ invites young visitors to explore representation of the self and consider different ways of creating their own portraits. The program extends the idea of self-portraiture beyond documenting our physical appearance, to create a richer understanding of how we can express aspects of our emotions, personality, memories and experiences.

The activities will remain available FREE at the GRAGM, while supplies last, between 13 - 20 January 2018.  

The program is running in conjunction with the ‘Me, Myselfie and I’ exhibition held at QAGOMA’s Children’s Art Centre from 9 December 2017 - 22 April 2018. ‘Kids on Tour’ is offered as a FREE program to regional Queensland communities through the Gallery’s Regional Services department.
