From 217 July, families are invited to enjoy this free, immersive art experience created by Slow Art Collective that will build over the course of the holidays through the collective contributions of visitors of all ages. Add to the growing installation and take part in storytelling sessions, origami, wishing cards, musical galaxies and colourful weaving.

MAAS Director, Dolla Merrillees, said the programs on offer at the Powerhouse and the Observatory were a great way to spend the holidays.

Tanabata is a Japanese fable which tells the story of two stars, Orihime the cloud weaver and Hikoboshi the cow-herder, who came to fall in love and live in the night sky. Families this holidays can weave their own story at the Powerhouse Museum, or visit the Sydney Observatory where this fable comes to life as these two stars meet on 7 July,” said Ms Merrillees.

Japanese origami artist Midori Furze will visit the Powerhouse Museum for origami workshops each weekend. Join Furze to learn how to fold impressive origami creations at home. Storytelling sessions at the Powerhouse Museum will introduce children to the Japanese fable of Orihime and Hikoboshi and Sydney Observatory will host daily Indigenous astronomy storytelling sessions.

The ever-popular Thinkspace school holiday program expands in July with four new, full day, digital workshops for budding programmers and gamers taking place across both the Powerhouse Museum and Sydney Observatory.

Focusing on creatively engaging kids, these workshops will teach you to master Minecraft, make your own arcade controller, design your on virtual reality game or make your own professional videos.
