Each play experience connects stories extracted from objects within the museum collection and engages a multi-generational learning strategy encouraging carers and parents to share in content and learning. Multiple layers of engagement and all ages accessibility are designed into each story, addressing diverse learning styles and abilities. Consultation with Traditional Owners, artists from Wiradjuri Country and the Erub Island community of the Torres Strait enabled Arterial to include work from Indigenous artists and to acknowledge diverse cultural perspectives on knowledge sharing.
