Join us for this special Festival of Ideas Sat-ART-day! Come and get creative – make, see, and explore!

This fun and FREE event will be jam-packed with inspiring activities for people of all ages to enjoy. Make your own arts + crafts, explore the artworks in the Graduate Degree Show and treat yourself in our café! Responding to the Festival’s theme ‘Powering Tomorrow’, you are invited to experiment with a fun range of materials in a relaxed environment.

The drop-in art activities include:

+ Imagine Tomorrow – create a collage that captures a future world. What you might be doing? What might it look like?

+ Be an Inventor – use everyday materials, and your imagination, to create magic machines to solve today’s problems.

+ Check out the Graduate Degree Show and create an artwork inspired by it.
