Child Care Centre & Pre-school Programs

Services available: Selected On-Site Presentations only. See below for details. During our specially-designed ‘Culture on the Go! – Masks’ and ‘Culture on the Go! – Aboriginal’ programs, we will come and visit your classroom with an amazing variety of museum-quality Performance Masks and Aboriginal artefacts aged between 50 and 300 years old, from all over Asia-Pacific and central and northern Australia. Using the construction material, design and expressions on the masks, our facilitators engage children on a journey of expression through different cultures – and they even get to make their very own take-home mask at the end of the presentation! Using the Aboriginal artefacts and Dreamtime stories, children learn of the daily life of Aboriginal people living in harsh environments. They also learn about the different work of men and women, and get to create their own piece of Aboriginal art!
