Organised for children aged 7 to 12, the idea of “Wunder” serves as a starting point. By exploring some of the diverse cultures within and around Singapore, the artist and the participants will think about how tales are told and invent new personas and characters associated with flying, fight good causes, feed the hungry, and… to be somebody wonderful. Focusing on stories the region has to tell and the images that those stories summon, ways of sharing experiences, visions, and emotions will be analysed, by reinventing “ritualistic” actions and creating personalised objects. For enquiries and to register your child, email NTUCCAEducation@ntu.edu.sg
