WISH FOR THE SKIES: Collaborative Kite installation

Weekends starting 13 November – 16 January 2022

Inspired by their experiences in Sapporo at Tenjinyama artists’ studios in 2018, Claire Healy and Sean Cordeiro conducted workshops with children to give them the opportunity in creating a large community kite.

The artists now invite children and families from the Blue Mountains community to join them in the making of a giant tetrahedral kite, a replica of a massive Alexander Graham Bell kite. The kite will be decorated with pictures and writing similar to Ema, the wooden wishing plaques of Japan. What is your wish? Will it fly? Gambate!

Free event. Suitable for kids with adult supervision.
