GACL KIDS is an art and culture program for children aged 7-11, presented by the Greek Australian Cultural League (GACL). The program invites children of all nationalities to participate and explore the wonders of Greek history, art and culture in fun and creative ways. Activities are designed and facilitated by an experienced art teacher and all materials are included. GACL KIDS will commence in the June school holiday period and will consist of 3 x 2 hour sessions. Each session will cover a different theme with activities exploring varied art mediums and techniques. Parents can drop off their children and visit the Gasworks Café onsite, explore the surrounds and exhibits of the Gasworks Arts Park or visit the nearby South Melbourne Market.

Story Telling through Art – Loss and Resilience
Art is a powerful way to guide children through the expression and reflection of emotions, social and self-awareness. In this special activity, commemorating the 100 year anniversary of the Asia Minor Catastrophe, we will use art and music to visually communicate emotions of loss and displacement, hope and resilience.
