  • Screen Worlds Education Visits

    Screen Worlds: The Story of Film, Television and Digital Culture is an exhibition spanning over 100 years of the moving image, from pre-cinematic objects and forms to today's immersive media.

    The exhibition contains 220 screen-based displays, over 30 hours of moving image content, including specially commissioned works, and fascinating artefacts and memorabilia.

    Screen Worlds gives students the opportunity to think critically about the moving image, to create work and manipulate its forms and to understand the integral role it plays in our lives.

    Free self-guided visits are available, or an educator can provide an introduction to the themes explored in the exhibition at a cost of $5 per student. Bookings are required for all education visits.

    In 2016 there are five options for your educator led visit, exploring the following themes;
