Family Day at the Gallery

Family Day at the Gallery

Come along to the Fantastic Worlds exhibition and enjoy a fun-filled family day!

The day will include interactive and drop-in activities plus book readings and creative workshops led by artists Leigh Hobbs, Elise Hurst, Isobel Knowles and Cat Rabbit (Soft Stories), Tai Snaith and Anna Walker.


You can also create and add your own character or story element to Story-Go-Round, an interactive installation by Cat Rabbit and Isobel Knowles (Soft Stories). Help grow a box garden in the Brunswick Town Hall Atrium, just like Mae in Anna Walker's book, Florette. Creatively colour in pictures by some of your favourite picture book artists from the Fantastic Worlds exhibition and create your own conertina book inspired by the artworks on display.
