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.

Give the gift of PLAY

We are driven by the right of all children to experience growth and resilience through creative play. Since 2018, more than 115,000 children and families have been able to access Polyglot’s work for free; 80% of our total audience.

For children, play is the basis of exploration – physically, imaginatively and creatively. Play is vital for children’s development and wellbeing. And play is the foundation of all Polyglot work. We build immersive, participatory worlds that give children the agency to explore, create and express their own ideas and culture within them.

  • I thought we would just get the ball of string but then we found how to play in there.

  • Children and their families can follow their curiosity and find a deeper path of understanding. The important thing is they get to decide the pace of exploration.

  • I liked how the sound changed as my drawings changed.

  • After my three year old came home, he went straight to his blocks and played wordlessly for a long time, which is what he does after a big inspiration.
