Free Entry


Saturday 15th - Sunday 23rd January 2022

Ararat Gallery TAMA



Ararat Gallery TAMA (Textile Art Museum Australia) is thrilled to host NGV Kids on Tour this summer!

NGV Kids on Tour offers FREE artist designed activities easily accessible to families in their local communities.

Ararat Gallery TAMA will provide free take-home activity packs for children to enjoy at home. The take-home packs include activities such as We Are Mermaids with Djerrkŋu Yunupiŋu, in which children will take inspiration from the mermaid story depicted in the bark paintings of Djerrkŋu Yunupiŋu, a contemporary Yolŋu artist from Yirrkala, North-East Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory, whose work is the subject of the NGV Kids exhibition The Gecko and the Mermaid: Djerrkŋu Yunupiŋu and Her Sister. The activity encourages young artists to draw a self-portrait of themselves as a mermaid and create a three-dimensional diorama of an ocean-inspired world where a mermaid would live.

This year there will also be activities for teens, including Styling a Look with Melbourne-based fashion stylist and creative director Aurie Indianna, from which teens can learn about becoming a stylist, working behind the scenes of a photo shoot and styling celebrities.

Bring the family into Ararat Gallery TAMA to receive your take-home pack from Saturday 15 – Sunday 23 January 2022!
