All Ages Creative Play

An interactive events program at Newlands NECCHI Neighbourhood House

Come try a serving of social art-making topped with a dash of creative-play as part of your Sunday Brunch. The MOMA Collective presents a unique community arts project that blends:

  • game-making and playing
  • arts & crafts making
  • story-telling
  • exhibition & sharing

We provide a ND/Queer friendly space that welcomes allies, families and friends - all ages, genders, cultures and ethnicities are respected and encouraged to participate. (Children should be accompanied by a responsible adult please).

This innovative community arts space is founded on the philosophies of 'art as a spiritual practice' and 'arts activism' (Artivism). "You are never too young too be validated as an artist and never too old to claim this as your birthright", says Loretta Monetta, Chief Curator at the Museum of Moving Art. You don't need any special skills or equipment to participate, just a willingness to playfully explore your own creativity.

The space: Newlands NECCHi community house is set in parklands at Coburg North. Our large light-filled activities room opens onto an enclosed garden & outdoor play area, and adjoins a fully functional kitchen. There's a quiet room if you need time out. The whole venue is wheelchair accessible.


Group activities and workshops will be facilitated in the first hour - these will vary from week to week. We intend to cover a broad range of arts, crafts, creative modalities and forms. You can also bring along your own projects if you like, we will provide materials for organised group activities. There's lots of space and we want to keep it fun and relatively informal. All Ages Creative Play is a program of facilitated activities, not an educational course.

Refreshments and chat: We break at 11 for a cuppa and a feed. Please consider bringing a plate of food to share if you can. Tea, coffee & biscuits will be provided.

Freestyle: The last hour is not structured, it is a time to hang out and maybe finish off projects already underway. A great time to experiment and be inspired by others.


Free for NECCHi members - sign up here. $5 per session casual. No one turned away for lack of funds. Book at Humanitix [Link to be fixed]
