Tech Mate is a new project in development by OSCA that invites children into a playful object filled experimental space.

Conceived by Paul Gazzola, Tech Mate asks children to take the lead in how they want to creatively dream, create and build temporary large-scale art installations supported by a team of SA artists – Tech Mates.

Working with a range of materials, each Tech Mate functions as a technical support person to the child’s creative inspiration and imaginative explorations.

They help stick things together, make the outcomes structurally sound and the activities safe.

Tech Mates are:

Kelly Reynolds

Will Cheesman

Deb Twining

Mat Morison

Come and collaborate with us on his new OSCA project and push the boundaries of art into future.
