Launch into Other Worlds: Exploring the Universe of Graeme Base! Lifting off in an action-packed weekend from 20-22 August, get up close and marvel at original illustrations from the book The Worst Band in the Universe by Australia’s favourite children’s author, Graeme Base.

Feeling inspired by Base’s thrilling and detailed works? Have a go at shaping your own colourful story at our zine-making station, or crafting recycled materials into a spaceship or interstellar alien at our junk modelling table.

An expert face painter will be on hand to transform you into your favourite extra-terrestrial character, and you can even take to the stage and travel space through song with our galactic karaoke! Quirky roving performers will entertain and delight, but don’t forget to keep your eye out for aliens hiding around the Centre – can you find them all?

Other Worlds is totally FREE and suitable for all ages. Taking off during the Children’s Book Council of Australia’s Book Week (21-27 August), we encourage you to dress up as your favourite otherworldly character and join us at Belconnen Arts Centre to make, play, learn and imagine.

Exhibition and activities continue 24 August – 10 October 2021
