BEAM ME UP : The Art of Abduction Spaceship Workshop

Join in the fun of Tony Albert’s BEAM ME UP : The Art of Abduction, in a series of workshops for children and adults.

Beam into this free workshop for kids and adults by Tony Albert (Girramay, Yidinyji and Kuku Yalanji) and his collaborator ENOKi (Dja Dja Wurrung and Yorta Yorta). It’s inspired by BEAM ME UP, The Art of Abduction—Tony’s playful, interactive installation that asks: ‘who is the alien, why are they here and what do they want?’

The alien is a recurring symbol in Tony’s art. He uses alien and pop culture imagery as a way of looking at the ‘other’, promoting conversation in understanding difference, and stating that all people have a place.

In this free workshop, young ones can create their own wearable spaceships and bring to life the aliens that are visiting Melbourne/Naarm during RISING.

Places are limited so, make like a laser, and hone in on a spot.

To ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone, please note that children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian throughout the workshop.
