This summer, the Convent is once again proud to present Sensory Art Lab, Slow Art Collective’s smash-hit school holiday program. We’re transforming the Convent’s c3 Contemporary Art Space into a DIY wonderland where families can imagine new worlds and make art together. As we enter a new and exciting decade, Sensory Art Lab: Vision 2020 encourages children to lead the conversation about the state of our planet and think about our shared future.

Discover unique games and art making in six different spaces including:

- Ultraviolet Tennis Ball Run – a glow-in-the-dark reimagining of the traditional marble run, with the balls running along the gallery walls!
- ‘Minecraft’ inspired Cubbyhouses – build your own utopian castle using repurposed and recycled materials.
- 2020 Visions Wall – write and draw on the gallery walls and share your ideas and hopes for the future.
- Music Tents – make some special beats using quirky purpose-build acoustic instruments.
- Take Aim – an action-packed game inspired by ‘Shateki’ (Japanese target practice).
- Room for Making – a space to get creative and let your imagination run wild.

Sensory Art Lab: 2020 Visions is delivered by the Convent in partnership with the expert Slow Art Collective team, whose creative practices focus on environmental sustainability, material ethics, DIY culture, activism and collaboration. Come along as a family and have a creative adventure at the Convent alongside a team of wildly talented and friendly artists.

No bookings required. Sensory Art Lab is best suited to children aged 2–10. All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
