Kate Robinson is an Iranian/Australian artist and family violence lawyer. Kate loves to create colourful loud craft and murals. In 2020, she was the inaugural Feminist in Residence at Queen Victoria Women’s Centre, where she curated the community craftivist exhibition ‘Make a Fuss’. She currently serves on the board for NextWave, and the QVWC Trust. Kate also co-creates the podcast, Being Biracial, which is all about navigating the world as a mixed-race person. This podcast was developed as part of the residence program at Footscray community arts.   Kate loves making art accessible and working with communities to reignite their creative side. To this end, she hosts craft workshops for local councils and galleries. In 2023, Kate will be an artist in residence at ArtsBox in Footscray, a judge of the Footscray Arts Prize for Young Artists, and a guest curator of the Amplify program for Maribyrnong City Council.  She held her first solo exhibition, Zendegi at ArtsGen Marios Gallery earlier this year.


> Do parents/carers need to stay and supervise or can kids be dropped off and picked up?
Parents/carers do not need to stay at the gallery during the program. We have amazing art educators who will be with the kids at all times. Parents, carers, and friends will be invited to celebrate the opening of the 'Brave Young Artists’ exhibition on the last day, Friday 29 September 2023.

> If a family is unable to attend one or two of the scheduled dates, should they still register?
The program is designed so that each day includes specific workshops and guest speakers that build upon each other, leading up to the final exhibition on Friday. Therefore, we encourage families to register only if their child can attend all of the sessions.

> Is there a contact phone number that parents can call if they have questions before or after registering?
For any enquires please contact Keir Semenov, Education & Public Programs Coordinator at or (03) 9534 0099.
