As the school holidays begin, Arts Centre Melbourne’s Families Program has created online experiences through the Together With You digital offering which is a world of fun and interactive experiences to help kids stay connected, entertained and inspired.
Kids will be able to ignite their imagination with their family by watching theatre performances, listen to music and podcasts, explore stories or get stuck into a creative activity at home.
Step into an imaginary world of hidden tunnels, lava pits and underwater caves without ever leaving your home in Mountain Goat Mountain. In this interactive journey, families will be guided with audio through a series of playful activities before being carried along through an immersive soundscape. Created entirely in isolation by a brilliant team of artists, Mountain Goat Mountain is designed for children and grown-ups to share together.
Last year, A Not So Traditional Story by Nathan Maynard took to the Fairfax stage in a story with a little bit of truth and a little bit of make believe. This archival recording is a rare and memorable performance that combines Terrapin’s renowned skill in entertaining and engaging children with the voice of a new generation of Tasmanian Aboriginal performing artists. The work will be available for 10 days from 12pm Monday 6 July.
Kids can also participate in multiple workshops created by The Channel: Home Studio which allows them to get creative in their very own digital home studio. They can discover how to create beats, perform magic tricks, make their own puppets, write lyrics and so much more. This series of fun and interactive digital workshops is taught by leading artists and musicians.
Families can also explore more content and activities inspired by the shows that have been on our stages. We’ve created a collection of craft activities and ideas to do with the kids and want to see your creations, so share them with us at #ACMWithYou
