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.



Thoughtaculture is a celebration of the process of forming ideas – the starting point of all things.

This workshop sparks students’ creativity as they work collaboratively to develop a greater understanding of the limitless potential in their own and their peers’ thoughts and creativity. The workshop provides a safe and supportive environment for students to freely explore their imaginations, and to follow a thought from a ‘seedling’ of an idea to a flourishing creation that adds value to the world.

While Thoughtaculture can be used to cultivate general creative thinking, it can also be used to inspire students to generate and develop ideas for specific topics or projects. It includes group discussion, drawing and reflection, as well as individual creative thinking and making.

To maximise our impact and exchange with school communities, Polyglot is moving away from single session workshop bookings. A two-day minimum booking requirement is now in place. To allow us to engage across year levels or with the entire school community, artistic residencies of at least a week are preferred.
