Kick off the school holidays with a trip to The Dowse, for a day jam-packed full of exciting exhibitions, hands-on activities and awe-inspiring performances. The Dowse is turning into a fashion house for the day, where you can try your hand at screen-printing, be inspired by the creatures of Good Bones and their animal prints, Frankenstein together a necklace à la Exquisite Corpse, play with text like Nell, and follow in the footsteps of Jimmy D. We’ve also got the circus coming to town, just to add to the fun! Drop in between 11am and 1pm to take part in the extravaganza. Run away with the circus without needing to leave the Hutt.
