Dumpling Dreams

A whimsical dumpling dreamscape full of fun, discovery and adventure.

Brought to life by beloved Brisbane-based artist YEAHYEAHCHLOE, the wonderfully imaginative Dumpling Dreams plops youngsters, the young-at-heart, and their adventurous adults into a colourful world complete with delicious new sidekicks.

A blank canvas to build your own world and bond with your new dumpling friends, little visitors will spend hours imagining dreamy futures, and discovering new ways to connect with the environment and people closest to them. Little creative hearts are free to dip their toes into the world of art and be themselves in a safe, inclusive space.

Featuring Augmented Reality experiences and interactive activities, you’re only limited by your imagination. Fill your days, weekends, and holidays with colour, connection, and creativity at HOTA Children’s Gallery.

Presented by HOTA, Home of the Arts.
