Join The Dots allows children in Sydney and Japan to make digital art together in this real-time creative project. Join the Dots connects kids in both countries via live video link to turn the walls of the Sydney Opera House and the Art Museum and Library, Ōta, into one giant projected canvas for drawing, making friends and having fun.
Join The Dots is conceived and created by the Sydney Opera House Creative Play team, who specialise in interactive installations for children and families.
