BLEACH* FESTIVAL AND ROBINA TOWN CENTRE PRESENT HERE I AM!.
â€œThe ultimate discovery playground for children, participants will be able to pinpoint where they are, where theyâ€™ve come from and the kind of community that they want to create in the future.” â€“Â Bleach* Festival Artistic Director Louise Bezzina
Bleach* Festival has created the ultimate adventure for the children of the Gold Coast. Robina Town Centre will be the exclusive home to the 2017 Bleach* JNR program with a series of new interactive art installations titled Here I Am!.Â
A world of discovery, Here I Am! brings to life two gorgeous art and play spaces for children and their families to explore and create together. This yearâ€™s kids festival is an artistic adventure where children can consider the types of communities they live in and the natural world around them.Â Â
In â€˜The Neighbourhoodâ€™ installation children become urban planners, architects, designers and community builders. Meanwhile, â€˜The Swampâ€™ has been designed as a soft natural landscape for children to play and dream of a long gone past, of creatures and nature.Â
Here I Am! is a highly participatory artwork, designed for maximum play, where children create the kinds of places they want to live in and adults gain a sense of how we can make our communities more child friendly.
The space can be enjoyed by audiences at any time throughout Bleach* Festival 2017, with a super cool selfie spot and chill out zone.
To experience the installations to their full extent, join the artists and facilitators themselves at a designated workshop, and escape on a down-to-earth journey of discovery and contrast that will inspire the cityâ€™s future innovators.
