10.30AM SUN 28 OCT 2018 QAG | GALLERY 10, GALLERY 11, GALLERY 12, GALLERY 13 | BOOK NOW

Works by Koolmatrie and Gascoigne, in the Queensland Art Gallery

On Grandparents Day, visitors of all ages are invited to join Words & Pictures writer, Dr June Perkins, on an interactive journey through the Australian Collection. Follow June’s series of poems and micro-stories throughout the Collection – with paper and pencil in hand! Write and draw your own responses, accompanied by special insights from the writer.

Discover a fresh perspective on the Australian Collection with Words & Pictures, an ongoing project that invites local artists and writers to respond to artworks in the Australian Collection. The Words & Pictures inspiration for Spring 2018 comes from Dr June Perkins. June is a Brisbane-based poet and children’s author, of Indigenous Papua New Guinean and Australian background, raised in Tasmania by Baha’i parents. Her first children’s book was the award-winning poetry collection, Magic Fish Dreaming (2016) illustrated by Helene Magisson.

You can contact the Gallery to book into this Free Tour.
