Take the Biennale Free Ferry over to Cockatoo Island for free craft activities designed to engage the kids with a range of exciting artworks.
Grab a Biennale Kids’ Map once you reach the island and lead the kids on an adventure to discover the different craft stations. Or, download our Kids’ Audio Tour which explains keys works on the island in a fun and easy to understand way. Bring the family and join in the fun exploring a world of art on Cockatoo Island.

Deutsche Bank inspires creativity: Proud Biennale Education Partner
Deutsche Bank inspires creativity through its sponsorship of artistic programs and is the proud Education Partner of the 17th Biennale of Sydney. Deutsche Bank believes that art, and in particular contemporary art, encourages people to try something new and broaden their horizons; art challenges, perplexes and educates. It is for these reasons that Deutsche Bank is thrilled to work in conjunction with the Biennale on its education program.
