Adelaide Festival Centre’s newest gallery Children’s Artspace takes a mythical turn throughout May and June with Legendary Textile Tales!

This exhibition is the stuff of legends – literally! With help from Adelaide Festival Centre’s centrED program, students from Salisbury East High School and Craigmore High School delved into their family history to create felt tableaus, tapestries, stuffed talismans and inky creatures from myths, legends, and folktales from their ancestry. With the help of SA textile artist Caitlin Bowe, all artwork in this exhibition is created by, and for, South Aussie kids.

With tales from Indigenous Australia, Pakistan, Denmark, Afghanistan, Italy, Scotland, Finland, and more, you can take a trip around the world (and through history) all from the comfort of Children’s Artspace. Read quotes from each of our student artists as they tell their tales and explain how much creating the exhibition means to them.

Children’s Artspace is the only gallery of its kind in Australia, and is free to enter for all families.

Come along Wednesday to Saturday, 10am – 3pm to support these little artists. Children’s Artspace is accessible via Festival Plaza or the Dunstan Playhouse foyer at Adelaide Festival Centre.
