The Children’s Republic asks children to formulate their ideal nation, described with national symbols: flags, an anthem, a constitution and national dress. What rules would there be? What values are important?
In July, 2015, The Children’s Republic of Liverpool premiered at Casula Powerhouse as part of the Way out West Festival 2015. The event welcomed over 10,000 participants, and culminated in an epic parade at the end of the 4 day festival.
The Children’s Republic has toured to the Sydney Opera House, ArtPlay in Melbourne and Dream Big Festival in Adelaide.
