Logan’s littlest citizens have their say

Little Paper People Launch

On May 24, Logan Together launched a colourful and creative art display at the Logan Art Gallery as part of Under 8’s Week.

The art installation is the culmination of more than 2,000 conversations with kids and families in Logan over the past six months asking them to document on Little Paper People “what’s important to you?”

The result was hundreds of little coloured paper people that now take pride of place in the Logan Art Gallery.

The exercise was undertaken as part of a comprehensive program of community listening activities that sought to capture the voice of local children.

We really wanted to hear what was on the minds of our littlest citizen’s, and this proved to be a fun and effective way to do it.

More than this, it’s provided some really useful insights for us and interestingly, a core set of theme emerged including things like hope, love, education, family and friends and general well- being.

The launch of the creative display coincided with the annual National Simultaneous Storytime, which saw the City of Logan’s Mayor Luke Smith reading this year’s book ‘The Cow Tripped Over the Moon’ by Tony Wilson to a group of young children.

Some kids from Eagleby Children’s Centre also attended the launch and were treated to some great activities organised by First Five Forever.

The interactive display of Little Paper People will be on display at the Logan Art Gallery until 10 June 2017, and we encourage you to go along and add your own little paper person to the wall!
