Popular kid’s PLAY exhibitions returns to inspire creativity at He Waka Tuia

Get ready to dive into a realm of creativity and imagination with He Waka Tuia’s wildly popular PLAY exhibition set to return.

PLAY 3.0 is back and better than ever for the third year running. This year’s exhibition includes nine interactive zones designed to get the grey matter working in the young and young at heart.

He Waka Tuia Art Curator Bridget Duncan said there was something for everyone at PLAY 3.0.

The exhibition had been so popular the past two years that the team decided to bring it back bigger and better than ever for the third year in a row, she said.

“Amongst the fun will be creating clay masterpieces, building Lego skylines, posing for striking selfies, and the exploration of musical installations. This really is a treat for the senses that we know everyone will love.

“Each of the nine stations incorporates a different art element, as well as history and creativity that will inspire the inner artist in everyone.”

While there will be areas with noise and colours, there will also be a dedicated low-sensory space for tranquil relaxation and time out, Duncan said.

“PLAY 3.0 aims to inspire lifelong learning, foster connections, and highlight the intrinsic value of play in shaping our lives. We believe it is so important to bring this element of fun into our lives that are often filled with work or school, to break up the monotony and bring out the creators in everyone,” Duncan said.

The latest exhibition runs now until July 28 at He Waka Tuia on the corner of Kelvin and Don streets.
