Acknowledgment of country

Polyglot acknowledges that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we live and create, and we pay our respects to Elders past and present. For more than 65,000 years, children and families have created and played here, and we are grateful to make our art on this country too.

Kids Collaborations

Reciprocity is at the heart of our Kids Collaborations.

Polyglot develops deep, trusting relationships with communities who often have limited access to the arts, and seek authentic creative engagement for their young people. These projects centralise children and their worldview as the drivers of new, specific works of art, co-created with Polyglot artists. Engagement ranges from a single term in a school, to years of deep relationship in a community.

Polyglot has recognised expertise in supporting community cultural resilience and capacity through our Kids Collaborations. We adhere to cultural protocols established by peak bodies, as well as additional protocols developed with particular people and communities we work with.
