Little Things Big Things is a visual and immersive introduction to issues of the environment, sustainability and community, for young people ages 4-12 years. The installation was inspired by the book of the same name, which was written, illustrated, and self-published by local artist, Eva Fritz. The overall aim of Little Things Big Things is to invite young people to hold gratitude for the little but big things in our lives that we get to experience on a daily basis, as well as bring an awareness to contemporary challenges in our community to younger generations of children in a way that is simple, inspiring and active.

Sustainability is a central theme of Little Things Big Things, as it has become a very important tool in the quest to confront not only climate change, but other social, and environmental challenges. For something to be sustainable, we can’t keep taking, we have to give back. Sustainability should be taught to young children so that they can embed healthy practices into their everyday lives without even thinking about it. For example, teaching them about recycling, caring for animals and plants, composting, shopping second hand, and looking after that very important resource – our wellbeing and the wellbeing of our community, are small actionable steps that help younger generations feel they can be a part of the solution to a healthy future on the planet.

The installation Little Things Big Things, was made possible through the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF).
