How do children imagine the city?

Come along to the City of Children exhibition to see how the children of Gowrie Victoria Docklands express their vision of Victoria Harbour through photography, drawing, making and conversation. Children are invited to think about the city they live in, get creative in our making space and add their own artwork to the exhibition.

City of Children is a collaborative project between The Exchange at Knowledge Market and Gowrie Victoria Docklands. Following a series of walking excursions and making sessions, the children of Gowrie Victoria Docklands have created work exploring themes such as structures, waste, transport, waterways and the history of Melbourne. Photographs, drawings and sculpture come together in a large-scale art installation at Knowledge Market, uncovering children’s’ valuable perspective of urban environments and the communities that exist within them.

The City of Children will also have a dedicated making space at Knowledge Market, open for all children to come along and create their own city-inspired artworks.

The Exchange at Knowledge Market is an innovative research project space curated by RMIT University in collaboration with Lendlease. Embedded within the Victoria Harbour precinct of Docklands, researchers are exploring the concept of community and new ways of understanding the shared urban environment through a series of workshops, exhibitions, forums and community events.
