Embark on a creative journey with Artspace Mackay and BHP Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA) as they bring art and music to young hearts in Mackay.

The BMA Kidspace program, renowned for captivating children up to five years old, is breaking free from the gallery confines.

With Artspace Mackay currently under renovation, the program is taking a detour, with scheduled stops in Bucasia, Slade Point, Sarina, and Andergrove.

Connecting Communities through Art

Director Tracey Heathwood expressed enthusiasm about the expansion of BMA Kidspace into the community, providing families with an opportunity to engage in free, music-infused art activities. 

Linda Murry, General Manager of BMA’s Hay Point Coal Terminal, underscored BMA’s proud 15-year association with the program, ensuring that the joys of art reach toddlers across different regions.

Save the Dates

Mark your calendars for the monthly BMA Kidspace events, starting in Bucasia on February 20 from 10 am to 2 pm.

Meanwhile, Artspace Mackay is gearing up for the Kids Art Club during term one, designed for budding artists aged eight to 12.

Renowned artist Rosemary Payne will lead the six-week program, promising a fusion of nature-inspired, experimental activities.

Artistic Adventures Await

Artspace Director Tracey Heathwood emphasised that Kids Art Club participants will embark on a creative exploration of Queens Park’s natural wonders through engaging and experimental activities.

Six Saturdays from February 17 to March 13 at the Cricket Shed, Queens Park, will be filled with artistic endeavours.
