Description

How do young children bring meaning to and make meaning from contemporary art within a museum context? What potential might there be for creative reciprocity between artists and young children? Can we create space for intellectually rich, thoughtful, deep and complex early childhood visual arts pedagogy for the very youngest children in Early Childhood Education and Care settings and museum and gallery contexts? In what ways can a sense of belonging be created for infants and toddlers (and their families) in large, public cultural institutions?

These questions and more form the foundations for Art & Wonder?: Young Children and Contemporary Art – a collaborative research and pedagogy project between the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA), Mia Mia Child and Family Study Centre (Mia Mia), and the Department of Educational Studies (DoES), Macquarie University.
