The big kids are back at school and it is time for the younger ones to get their gallery shoes on. Tweed Regional Gallery is hosting a series of monthly playdates where children from 6 months to 5 years old, and their carers, can share in activities inspired by the artworks on display or happenings in the community.

The next playdate on Wednesday 3 May, from 9.30 to 10.30 am will explore the theme of recycling in conjunction with Tweed Shire Council’s new 3 Bin System. 

‘The kids will build and play with recycled packaging sculpture, while the adults can learn more about ways in which we can reduce waste in our households,’ said the Gallery’s Education and Audience Development Officer, Jodi Ferrari.

The Gallery will open slightly earlier on the day of each playdate so families can enjoy a quiet

experience in the exhibition. The playdates often include storytelling, soft toy play, and looking at and singing about artworks.

The Gallery also provides a cool, dry place for families visiting the Murwillumbah Farmers’ Markets before the Gallery Playdate to store their groceries.

‘Wednesdays are a great day to come into Murwillumbah – to enjoy some local produce and then embrace the theme of “Love Food Hate Waste” through art,’ Ferrari said.

The gallery is located at 2 Mistral Rd, South Murwillumbah. Playdates are generally scheduled for the first Wednesday of the month during term time.
