Discover your creative voice and gain the skills and the confidence to use it at Girls Write Up, an inclusive all-day festival for teens aged 12–18. Explore the relationship between language, gender and power in panels and practical workshops, and learn how authors, journalists, activists, artists, poets and other creative thinkers have used their writing to define their identities and shape the
world around them.
Until 2 December | Little Stanley Street Lawns
Enjoy this free Active Kids class, held in the stunning surrounds of the South Bank Parklands. This fun workout for kids aged 5-12 helps create healthy habits from an early age and provides the building blocks for a positive body image.
Yayoi Kusama: The Obliteration Room

Children are invited to enter the world of leading contemporary Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama and 'obliterate' an Australian domestic space by adding colourful dot stickers to white furniture, objects and surfaces in the large-scale interactive installation, The Obliteration Room. The Obliteration Room is a dynamic artwork that transforms over time as hundreds of thousands of dots accumulate in the space.
