Shake the Rainbow

Art cropping up in everyday places and taking inspiration from mundane objects has been going on for years. Warhol loved his Campbell's soup cans and Banksy brings art to streets in every corner of the globe. So, to celebrate art, colour and creativity in the everyday, Stockland Green Hills is bringing a bit of pizzazz to the plaza this week. For four days, the shopping centre will be transformed into an explosion of colour, so you can be inspired on your next trip to the mall.

First up, there'll be the Colour Hub — think loud wallpapers and mismatched patterned flooring, plus a ball pit. Each section of the hub will excite a different sense, too. In some areas you'll be encouraged to touch the various textured walls, and in another you'll be listening to upbeat tunes. There'll even be Willy Wonka-inspired scratch-and-sniff wallpaper, plus a candy-filled centrepiece, so you can suck on a gum ball while your feast your eyes on all the surrounding colour.

More into getting your hands dirty? Then head to the Creation Station: a pop up where you can tap into your inner child. Channel your undiscovered Warhol with an acrylic painting class, try your hand at the 3Doolder Pen Workshop or decorate (then eat) your own doughnut. Or, if you're more into glitz and glamour, you can score a free mini makeover too.

Shake the Rainbow is taking over Stockland Green Hills Shopping Centre from Thursday, October 17 through Sunday, October 20. Some activities require bookings. To nab your spot, head here
