Blue Suitcase: What Inspires Artists?

Available for loan in 2 – 4 week blocks, including teaching notes, discussion topics and object based activities. 2018 cost: $25 administration fee.

Contact the Booking Officer (cmagbookings@act.gov.au) for more information on borrowing the suitcases, including details of our specially designed preschool teaching notes. The suitcases can be collected from Canberra Museum and Gallery and will fit into the boot of a small hatchback with the back seat folded down, or the boot/back seat of a larger sedan. This project has been developed by Craft ACT in collaboration with Canberra Museum and Gallery.

This suitcase contains a series of quirky and exciting objects where the artists have used imaginative approaches to materials. Here you will find toast made from clay, Millennium Bug Teapots and other strange and inspiring objects made from plastic, timber and collected objects.
