Questacon Mural

Questacon is the National Science and Technology Centre, based in Canberra, Australia. They strive to promote greater understanding and awareness of science and technology within the community. 430,000 people visit the Canberra facilities each year.

I designed and produced a mural for Questacon, in collaboration with designer Anna Trundle. This mural is located in a prominent walkway near the foyer, as visitors pass through the permanent collection.

The mural was produced to coincide with the United Nations International Youth Day. The graphics celebrate UNESCO’s 17 Sustainability Development Goals, along with a quote from UN General Secretary Ban Ki-moon. The mural is planned to remain for at least six months, before being removed.

This photograph was taken at a launch event for the UN International Youth Day 2016, which included a guest speaker panel of emerging young leaders. The photograph was taken by ABC’s Lish Fejer, featuring Questacon Director Graham Durant, Director of the UN Information Centre Chris Woodthorpe, myself and guest speaker from the Youth Day Celebration Nicola Barker. The image was subsequently shared via Questacon’s social media accounts.
