 The Children’s Party

Description

Playground politics just got serious. The Children's Party is hitting the campaign trail during the 2017 Melbourne Fringe Festival, as Australia's first child-led political party.

Everything from policy ideas and key messages through to banners and slogans will be dreamed-up and double-spoken by a team of young people aged 8 to 12. Supported by a set of advisers, speech writers and industry experts their message to the people at the inaugural Children’s Party Convention.

Part participatory art project, part social provocation, part the juiciest episode of Q&A you have ever seen – The Children's Party flips the adult–child hierarchy on its head.

Vote above the line, below the line or outside the lines – but whatever you do, buckle up, because The Children's Party aren't fooling around.

By Ben Landau & Alex Walker. A world premiere, presented by Arts House and the Melbourne Fringe Festival.
