ACMI announces four relaxed summer events
ACMI will host four relaxed events this summer for autistic people with sensory sensitivities.
The relaxed visits have reduced noise and light stimulation, and a dedicated quiet zone. The exhibition explores the magic of the moving image with ACMI’s permanent collection of film, television, video games, virtual reality and digital art.
ACMI will also host a relaxed session of their Minecraft Building Challenge on 16 Jan, from 10am to 4pm. It is a paid event, with tickets starting at $115 for members.
The Minecraft Building Challenge is a custom one-day workshop designed for autistic children with sensory sensitivities to work both independently and together to complete a series of exciting challenges. The workshop features lower numbers of attendees and a specialized structure.
The workshop is about connecting fans of this game in a positive social environment, allowing them to explore, challenge themselves and each other with help from our Minecraft experts.
Parents do not need to attend the workshop – children are fully supervised at all times. Children will need to bring a packed lunch, as this is not provided in the cost of the workshop. In the event of cancellation, ticket holders are notified directly and a full refund is provided. Recommended for kids and teens aged 8-14.
ACMI is located at Federation Square, Flinders Street, Melbourne VIC 3000
