RIFIFI: Jean Jullien for Kids heads up NGV’s Kids Summer Festival

For many, the NGV's Kids Summer Festival is their first experience of the gallery. The philosophy is all about getting them in young, making it fun and tying it into the Triennial.

A week-long festival of free summer holiday activities for kids and families is underway at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) International until Sunday 14 January.

You can expect some noise and flurry as young kids engage with their own exhibition, commissioned as part of the NGV Triennial, along with art-making activities, dance workshops, yoga and free performances. If it all gets too much inside, there’s the NGV garden outside, where bubbles will float through the air and beach-themed music will accompany families relaxing in the sun with ice-creams.
