Light Pickers (Babies to 5 years)
Artplay, Birrarung Marr, Melbourne
Saturday 30 June, 10.30am to 12.30pm
Free, no bookings required

Conceived by Polyglot Theatre artist Mischa Long, Light Pickers is born from the premise that small children are irresistibly drawn to sources of light. Sculptural cardboard, recycled plastic and paper objects will fill the space, light and sound emanating from them, inviting you to explore. As you play with the objects, pulling them into different configurations, you will create a unique garden of light, transforming the space and inspiring fascination and wonder.
