Let's meet on Tallawoladah to draw Warrang (Sydney Cove) during the summer holidays.

Draw Warrang (Sydney Cove) during the summer holidays at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia.

Taking inspiration from Primavera 2022: Young Australian Artists, watch the water float by, smell the mixing of fresh and saltwater and imagine the underwater world that lives in Warrang.

This all day creative program is suitable for the whole family and is supported by MCA Artist Educators.

Sensory-friendly session: 10.30am–12.30pm Friday 13 January and 2–4pm Sunday 15 January

The MCA believes that art is for everyone. Their sensory-friendly sessions offer the same adventure described above, with the following changes:

  • Visitors will be asked to be mindful of each other's experience when arriving

  • Music and noise volume is lowered

  • Lights and equipment are reduced, to create a calmer space

  • Extra chill-out space for all families

  • Extra MCA Staff to support everyone

  • Extra space and time to take part at your own pace
