OUR BRIEF
Curate and produce a participatory art workshop for children and families at the Barangaroo Street Fair on Sunday 13 November 2016. The aim of the workshop was for children to create a public artwork on a 40-metre black construction hoarding, in collaboration with a contemporary artist, all in one day!

THE PROJECT
A collaboration with Tokyo-based Japanese artist Nobumasa Takahashi who illustrated the entire wall together with over 700 participants. Every hour of the Street Fair children were armed with posca pens and invited to bring Nobumasa’s grey cityscape to life with their colourful drawings. An accompanying ‘Ninja Star Origami Workshop’ also gave children a chance to do some hands-on making.
