Voices from the Centers offers a novel way for children to engage with works
from the National Collection.
Inspired by the hit video app Tik Tok, children are invited to select an artwork
and respond to it in a video of up to 60 seconds.
They can sing, dance, or simply talk about what they think and feel when they
look at the artwork! Each child can then create their own unique video collage
by choosing from a selection of weaving techniques to superimpose their video
with the artwork.
The video collages will be displayed online, and a selection played on
continuous loop throughout the exhibition.
