Join the Dots

CONCEPT
Join the Dots is a cross-cultural art exchange project that brings children, visual artists and performers in Japan and Australia together. The project shows us the power of creative play to create meaningful exchanges that transcend language and culture – we may not speak each other’s language, or be in the same country, but we can collaborate, communicate and create art.

My job was to help the kids join the dots by making drawings on a tablet that were projected onto the big screen. Who could ask for a better job, drawing all day with an amazing team…..
