Backyard Story Time at the RMG: July

Jul 17, 2024, 10:30 AM - Jul 17, 2024, 11:30 AM

Experience the magic of outdoor story time at the art gallery! Through books, songs, games, and creative activities, storytellers from Oshawa Public Libraries will spark your imagination in The Backyard at the RMG! This event is free and no registration is required.

Offered alongside the exhibition Contemporary Kids, this year’s Backyard Story Time themes have been selected by one of the exhibition’s participating artists, Shaya Ishaq. Shaya’s cozy book-inspired installation is available to explore during opening hours at the RMG. Celebrating the unique perspectives and ingenuity of children, Contemporary Kids is an exhibition featuring a collection of collaborative artwork made by artists and kids and interactive installations that allow parents and children to explore and play together.

Backyard Story Time at the RMG is hosted by, and offered in partnership with, Oshawa Public Libraries.

Contemporary Kids has been financially assisted by the Ontario Cultural Attractions Fund, a program of the Government of Ontario through the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport, administered by the Ontario Cultural Attractions Fund Corporation.
