DCA Create Space is a flexible, comfortable and imaginative space; a space in which people of all ages can see, think, make and do. 

In Create Space you'll find art materials and activities inspired by the exhibitions in DCA galleries. Come in and make your own art to display on the walls or take home with you. You can also relax on our comfy sofas with a range of children's books that relate to the themes of the exhibition. 

If Create Space is closed when you visit, you can find a selection of activity sheets and materials on our Art Cart which is located in the Information Space. You can check the opening times for Create Space below or download our Family Activity Calendar.
