Our Wonderful World at MADE
bella - May 17th, 2017
What is your vision of a wonderful world? What can we, as global citizens, add to the world we live in to make it wonderful? Can one person make a difference?
Our Wonderful World is an interactive exhibit, opening at the Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka (MADE) on Saturday 1 July which poses all these questions.
MADE’s hands on exhibit, Our Wonderful World, asks visitors, children and adults alike, to think about active citizenship and democracy through the building of a collective panorama.
By using small stickers, participants are asked to create pictures of the things, people, feelings and ideas, that contribute to building the world that they want to live in. Tens of thousands of small stickers will help create a 15 linear metre curved panorama, of what makes a wonderful world.
Everyone who participates is given the same ‘building blocks’ – a sheet of rectangle stickers, and prompted with questions like: What does a wonderful world need? What will help people to live? Can you make a difference?
Children are encouraged to think about the needs of others as well as their own. Those who do not feel that artistic are encouraged to put their contribution in words. All participants receive an award for their contribution to the world.
When: Daily 10am – 5pm, 1 July – 13 August
Where: Tower exhibition space at MADE
102 Stawell Street South, Ballarat
