A whimsical dumpling dreamscape full of fun, discovery and adventure has just landed at HOTA, and you won’t want to miss it!

From now until May 1, 2022, , the wonderfully imaginative Dumpling Dreams plops youngsters, the young-at-heart, and their adventurous adults into a colourful world complete with delicious new sidekicks. 

Brought to life by beloved Brisbane-based artist YEAHYEAHCHLOE – who recently worked with Twix and Nike – Dumpling Dreams offers a blank canvas to build your own world. Here, children can bond with their new dumpling friends and spend hours imagining dreamy futures, discovering new ways to connect with the environment and people closest to them. Little creative hearts are free to dip their toes into the world of art and be themselves in a safe, inclusive space.

Featuring Augmented Reality experiences and interactive activities, you’re only limited by your imagination. Fill your days, weekends, and holidays with colour, connection, and creativity at HOTA Children’s Gallery.
