Drop-in any time, work together with your family or alone, spend as long or as little time as you choose. Play with a new creative activity and create a character and make up a story to bring your character to life! Prompts will be available to help you get started or just ask byrd for some tips.

  • Basic material will be available (pens and office paper), however, participants are invited to bring their own paper and markers if desired.

About byrd

Best known for his Canberra street art, byrd’s themes emerge from a personal universe that explores environmental, gender and race politics, the paradoxes of the arts industry and mediated pop culture. His lens has a deep appreciation of Australia’s creatures and natural environment and is interested in the aspirations and pitfalls of placemaking, through the collection, reflection and re-presentation (or reimagining) of local things. byrd has works held in the collections of The National Gallery of Australia, Canberra Museum and Gallery, The Molongolo group, Craft ACT, Arts ACT and various private collections both locally and abroad.
