October 6, Banshees Bar and Art Space, Ipswich.
Little Things Big Things tells the pictorial story of the little things in life which are the very big things in life, particularly if you don’t have them. Having clean water to drink, a safe place to sleep, or just being born on the ‘right side of town,’ are some of the experiences that Little Things Big Things invite the observer to hold gratitude for.
Ideally, the images are stimuli for the reader to consider a world where every child has access to the basic needs and freedoms that are depicted. Intended for all ages, the images can be use as simple reflective pieces, or as an invitation to explore broader concepts through the questions that accompany each artwork.
Accompanying each image are a series of questions which can provoke further discussion and research presented by the theme in the image. These questions can be used as part of home story time or adapted for an educational context. For example, “Where does your drinking water come from?” “What keeps our air clean?” “What are some of the services in our community that keep our environment clean,”Are there threatened species in your country?” are some of the questions intended to stimulate conversation and investigation. .
