Acknowledgement of Country

Sandpit respectfully works across the unceded lands of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung peoples of the Eastern Kulin Nations, as well as the Kaurna and Yugambeh peoples. We recognise and respect their continued cultural, spiritual and technological practices.

We also extend this to all First Nations peoples across the land known as Australia and pay respects to their Ancestors and Elders past and present.

As the very first storytellers and technologists, First Nations peoples possess invaluable knowledge and perspectives that are crucial to the work that we do across both the physical and digital realms.

The Show Must Go On!

Debuting as part of DreamBIG Children’s Festival, Sandpit built a web-app scavenger hunt to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Adelaide Festival Centre (AFC).

Using our custom image scanning software, visitors follow clues around the AFC plaza to find posters of the five missing costumes. Once scanned, the costumes come to life on the visitor’s phone, becoming AR filters that visitors can try on for themselves.

The experience is aimed at children and families and is a fun, colourful way to engage them with the AFC’s history and continuing collection. The entire experience is guided in-phone by an AFC usher named Sharon who urges the visitors to find the missing costumes before the curtain rises as “the show simply must go on!”
