The MCA is dedicated to connecting communities to contemporary art and artists and this is equally important during challenging times. Your MCA offers free, online creative learning programs for a broad range of audiences to inspire and spark people’s own creativity.

The program includes kids and families art activities for the April school holidays, inspired by the 22nd Biennale of Sydney NIRIN exhibition; a youth-led online GENEXT for teens aged 12 to 18 years; conversations between MCA curators and leading Australian and international artists on what it means to be an artist working today; and online learning programs for parents and teachers to help children while home from school.

MCA Australia Director, Elizabeth Ann Macgregor OBE said that these new digital resources will help people reflect, find solace and see the world in new ways. The MCA may be closed but we continue to provide people across Australia with meaningful ways to engage with contemporary art and help us see a positive future beyond these difficult times,” she said.

“We’re working hard to offer many of our onsite programs at the Museum online and we hope that these resources will provide much-needed respite for our communities,” added Macgregor.

Your MCA online activities are now live from the MCA website with more digital experiences being added over the coming weeks. For more information, visit: for details.
