Discover the wonderful world of digital innovation made especially for children.

Bring the family or your class and spend the day in the beautiful grounds of the Subiaco Arts Centre exploring incredible interactive installations before settling in for a bite to eat.

Sydney Opera House presents two fantastic works developed through their Creative Play program. Play with light and colour with the magical Shadow Tables, by Australian Toby Knyvett, and make your mark with the amazing Digital Drawing Wall. Or get physical in a race through a virtual world with Headrush, from award-winning Dutch artist Lieven van Velthoven.

Check out two superb short film programs jam-packed with the very latest and greatest in animation, direct from our partners at Cinekid (The Netherlands), Europe’s premier new media festival for children. Titles include The Mods (Italy), The Present (Germany) and Tik-Tak (Estonia).
