Experiment with sound art at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia

Experiment with sound art!

We're inviting families to play with the possibilities of art, sound and music. Use everyday objects and recording equipment to create your very own sound-based artwork.

This school holiday program is inspired by Waters' Witness by Lebanese artist and composer Tarek Atoui. Known for his collaborative performances and installations using handcrafted musical instruments, Atoui creates compositions that direct sound through organic materials. 

This is a free, drop-in program.

Sensory-friendly session: Friday 30 September 10am–12pm  

At the MCA, we believe that art is for everyone. Our 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

Who can attend?

All bodies and all abilities are welcome. We keep our activities simple so that children and their grown-ups can play and create together. There is no right or wrong way to make art! Please note, all children must be accompanied and supervised by an adult throughout their visit.
