Deaf Services is excited to be running this event in partnership with Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) who will be hosting a trial of upcoming APT9 Kids project 'Illuminate' by APT9 artist Nona Garcia. This hands-on activity encourages children to create patterns and designs by rearranging X-ray images of sea coral and animal bones.
