As Vivid Sydney lights up the city, the museum is bringing to life a play[ground] for kids and families alike to experience. This Queen’s Birthday weekend, the Hyde Park Barracks courtyard is going to be transformed into a giant green city playground. The weekend will include activities, creative fun and workshops.

The three main workshops include Parkour, where children can explore the city through running, jumping and skipping (if you have not seen a Parkour video I recommend you Google it immediately). There is also the Junglefy Your City workshop, where kids can get involved in creating a giant vertical plant wall and finally, the 3D City Soundscapes workshop where children aged eight and up can learn about 3D printing and what can be created in the future. By turning the 19th century setting of the barracks into ideas of the future, Sydney Living Museums and Archkidz believe that the children can learn in an innovative and creative way.  (LB)
