NIRIN AT HOME

We're excited to present a series of resources made to encourage educators and families to explore and engage with artworks and artists for the 22nd Biennale of Sydney in their homes. 

The resources are a starting point for educators and families to adapt accordingly to their needs, providing background information, inquiry questions, creative learning activities and recipes. The resources have been designed for all young people to engage with.
