We need to acknowledge children’s right to participate in the community as equal citizens.
This includes welcoming and designing public space for children and creating opportunities for children to contribute their art, views and ideas to the development of their community. A truly inclusive city needs to be designed for everyone, including our little people.
Eyeline is a new large-scale visual arts project created in collaboration with children. Children and professional renowned visual artists create art works together, which are displayed permanently at a child’s ‘eyeline’ throughout an entire city. Gallery spaces are built permanently within the fabric of the city. Children are charged with the curation of each space. This urban transformation turns a city into one giant gallery made especially with, by and for children. An city-wide audio tour, created with Phip Murray, featuring interviews of the children artists will link each public ‘gallery’ across a city.
All The Queens Men seeks creative development partners, to test the co-curation and making models with artists and children as well as long-term project partners who think big and are committed to a large scale urban transformation, reframing the way a city is experienced – through our future leaders – the young!
