The NGV and Daniel Emma embarked on a collaborative process to develop and deliver the overall design and four activities of the kids exhibition Up Down and All Around: Daniel Emma for Kids. From initial workshops and briefings to weekly project meetings held to develop the design and the interactivities. In refining and executing the design all details were considered.
In the design and fabrication of all element’s durability and suitability of use by children was a high priority. The space needed to be designed for children whilst also catering to and being accessible for all ages. Prototyping and testing of elements was undertaken to ensure elements were up to standard, functional, safe and worked for the design. Finally, the design team oversaw the build and install of this exhibition with focus on details, quality finishes, and precision.
Level of engagement with the exhibition and its activities has exceeded expectations, with the exhibition becoming one of the NGV’s most visited kids exhibitions.
