Join Umbrella for free self-guided activities recommended for children aged 5-14 during the Easter school holidays! 

The Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) Children’s Art Centre and Regional Services are delighted to present Superpowered on Tour for children and families in regional and remote Queensland. The program will be presented at Umbrella from Saturday 1 to Sunday 16 April during gallery opening hours Tues-Fri 9am-5pm, Sat-Sun 9am-1pm (excluding the Easter public holidays Friday 7 - Sunday 9 April).

Superpowered on Tour has been developed to coincide with the Children’s Art Centre exhibition Superpowered, on display at QAGOMA.

This program will feature activities created by the Children’s Art Centre in collaboration with four Australian artists – Kaylene Whiskey (Yankunytjatjara people), Tony Albert (Girramay/Yidinyji/Kuku Yalanji peoples), Gordon Hookey (Waanyi people) and Vincent Namatjira (Western Aranda people) – who use their voices and their art to empower Aboriginal people and create inspirational imagery for all children. The activities will focus on strong empowering messages and humour.

Since 1998, QAGOMA has collaborated with more than 300 Australian and international contemporary artists. The Children’s Art Centre is a leader in developing interactive projects, activities and publications that engage children with contemporary cultures, artists and ideas.

The Kids on Tour program provides this content free of charge to communities throughout Queensland.

'Superpowered on Tour' is free QAGOMA Touring program available to regional Queensland communities.
