What does the future look like through children’s eyes?

Children live in a rapidly changing world with technology constantly evolving, societies becoming more multi-cultural and the environment facing enormous challenges. By using their creative imagination and inventive ideas children can contribute to transforming this challenging world.

The Kids Arts Festival is a one-day annual event of free activities for the whole family. This year’s theme, ‘You are the future’, invites children and teens to explore the future and share their ideas through the arts. It is a great opportunity for the whole family to engage in a range of activities such as participating in free art workshops and enjoying multi-cultural children's performances. Local schools will be presenting lively art, photography and multimedia exhibitions.  

Workshops include: futuristic jewelry, robot building, Chinese crafts, Maori and Pacific weaving, African drumming, futuristic graffiti sculptures, dance performance and drama. Most workshops are suitable for 5 to 14 year old children and teens. They can drop-in to any of the workshops and stay as long as they like.

Artist Vaimoana Eves will invite children and adults to interact with her work ‘Play  Space’ exhibition at Corban Estate Arts Centre gallery.

Bring a picnic or purchase lunch from the selection of tasty food available on site, which you can enjoy in our beautiful park-like environment.

Kids Arts Festival 2012 will take place on Saturday 5 May from 10 am to 4 pm and Mayor Len Brown will cut the ribbon that will officially open the annual event. Corban Estate Arts Centre facilities will provide an enjoyable experience whether there is sunshine or rain.
