Family Day at Biennale of Sydney

From yoga to interactive performances, there’s a robust all-ages program at the Biennale of Sydney 2022.

The 23rd Biennale of Sydney is a celebration of global inclusivity, hosting a series of “conceptual wetlands and imagined ecosystems” populated by artworks, public programs and experiments.

From March 12 to June 13, the exhibition – which is titled rīvus – will transport visitors via works dotted around Sydney, including Art Gallery of New South Wales, Arts and Cultural Exchange, Barangaroo, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, National Art School in partnership with Artspace, The Rocks and Pier 2/3 at Walsh Bay Arts Precinct. The Cutaway at Barangaroo, will be the base for the Biennale’s public program, The Waterhouseoffering daily events and experiences for all of the 94 days of the exhibition.

On the first Saturday of the month throughout the run of rīvusFamily Day events will welcome children, parents, carers and friends to join in on a variety of activities that explore space, art and place at The Cutaway.

Curious kids will have the opportunity to learn how to recycle with Sydney-based organization Defy Design. They will be hosting a portable “mini factory” for cleaning, sorting, shredding and molding pieces of plastic waste and transforming it into something useful. It’s a tactile way to teach younger generations about the possibilities of creating new plastics systems.

Yoga teacher Beth Borowsky will run a yoga session for 4 to 8-year-olds combining traditional techniques with breathing exercises and stories that encourage mindfulness.

Artist Nadia Odlum will host Interpret this, a hybrid workshop event involving drawings and interactive games. Participants will engage in experimental and playful movement, that will include them in visual arts, dance and architecture.

Family Day will run from 10 to 10.30am on April 2, May 7 and June 4. Tickets range from $8 to $15.
