Our World is a thought-provoking interpretation of the 17 Global Sustainable Development Goals, set forth by the UN in 2015. Sustainability is at the forefront of both the global goals themselves and the exhibition. As such, it presents a world built from cardboard boxes, toilet paper rolls, old toys, and some of the museums own taxidermy animals.
The exhibition dives deep into the heart of the global goals and examines them in a whimsical and engaging way that both children and their adults can enjoy. Each goal has its own distinct expression and character, which all blends together seamlessly into an interconnected visual web. It’s playful. It’s fun. And it makes you think.
Though the exhibition is open to the public, it’s nowhere near done. We need your help! Taking centre stage – literally – is the sun, where kids are free to explore their creativity to the fullest. Using recycled items, kids can help create the exhibition, by building houses from milk cartons, fish from old egg trays, and birds from cardboard boxes, among other things. Like the real world, Our World is never complete, but is constantly developing and changing.
Shane Brox, the man behind the exhibition, invites you to take a journey into Our World, to see its beauty, fragility, and ever-changing nature.
