Free entry

NGV Australia, Federation Square

Level 3

May 2020 – Apr 2021

Open 10am–5pm daily

Tackling global issues from climate to tolerance and social change, today’s children and young people are arguably the leading activists of our time, urging the world to think about how our actions are influencing our future.

We Change the World takes the positive influence of this generation on shaping our worldview and, through the work of contemporary artists and designers, explores how creativity and expression is important at personal, community and global levels.

The exhibition encourages all visitors, and especially school students and young people, to engage with the work of prominent Australian and international artists from the NGV Collection who look out to some of the big issues of today as well as celebrating everyday life.

We Change the World highlights the contribution of creative minds and challenge us to consider our own potential for change, empowering young people, but also those of all ages, with the permission to be creative, speak up or speak differently.

Schools have access to a range of learning resources across diverse areas of the curriculum, to support students in engaging with the leading themes and ideas presented in the exhibition.
