Let your imagination run wild in a creative laboratory full of the sights and sounds of Sydney.
Sydney Living Museums is currently presenting 'Alphabetical Sydney: Creative Lab', a fabulous interactive exhibition celebrating the wonderful city of Sydney in all its diversity, from A to Z.
This fun-filled, immersive exhibition was produced in collaboration with illustrator Antonia Pesenti and author Hilary Bell, creators of the best-selling book, Alphabetical Sydney.
Showcased in a bright, creative laboratory, the city of Sydney is brought to life through a series of creative activities which will capture your imagination! You will be inspired and uncover everything from icons to suburbs, from the mundane to the wondrous!
A souvenir Lab Kit, specially created for this exhibition, leads visitors through the show using playful illustrations and rhyming verse. Visitors are also invited to investigate the clues in the mini-museum, write their own verse in the poetry factory, experience the magic of Sydney at dusk and relax with a book under the canopy of a Moreton Bay fig tree. The sounds of the city in all their intensity and diversity are hidden throughout – deafening cicadas, clanging construction, an elephant's trumpet from the zoo!
Budding artists and authors and anyone with a sense of fun and a capacity to dream are sure to enjoy this delightful experience. Take the opportunity to write and draw your way through the city you love!
"Pick up your Lab Kit, it's time to begin."
Alphabetical Sydney: Creative Lab is now open at Museum of Sydney until 12 August 2018 and is FREE with museum entry:
The exhibition is open daily, 10am-5pm (Closed Good Friday).
