Pom Pom is a contemporary art space dedicated to engaging children (aged 5-12 years) and their families.

Located in Davoren Park in Adelaide’s northern suburbs, Pom Pom offers hands-on creative workshops delivered by leading artists, many with an international profile, over the school term and during school holidays. 

Pom Pom supports an art making process between children and their families and carers, while offering children enchanting contemporary arts experiences. 

Pom Pom is open from 11am to 3pm on Saturdays during school terms (excluding the last Saturday of each term) & 11am to 3pm Monday to Friday during the Autumn, Winter and Spring School holidays (excluding public holidays).
