As part of this years NAIDOC celebrations, Refill artists worked with First Nation students to create a map of Miller. Young people marked out where they live, their favourite landmarks and the things they like to do in the local area.
Universum Mobili is an art + science wonder cart developed for the WOW Festival this year through CuriousWorks ReFILL Program.
Created by young people 12- 13 years from Miller Technology High School, it got pretty nice feedback from kids and parents alike.
“It’s just like a mini-Questacon” “My kid keeps coming back – fascinated by everything”
“How do we get this program happening in our school?”
Thanks to the vision of Claudia Chidiac (WOW Festival Curator) and Sally Atkins (MTHS Student Voice Advocate) and Sarah Emery, lead artist of ReFILL.
All the artists and teachers on ReFILL strive to bring wonder, opportunity and fun to the young people of Liverpool.
Young artists in the ReFill program imagined themselves in outer space to create these strange self-portraits.
The ReFill program has been full steam ahead this year. Take a look behind the scenes at some of the wonderful things that happened in Term One.
