Get out and explore different sides of places around Singapore with The City Ramble Design Trails 2018, part of the Singapore Design Week 2018.
From 10 to 11 March 2018, The City Ramble Design Trails, will expose various aspects of creative communities around Singapore through three tracks – Process, Heritage and Stories.
The City Ramble Process
As part of the City Ramble Process track, the public will be provided a closer look at the design process adopted by creative professionals. Three separate spaces have been activated for the ticketed City Ramble Process track – Citizen Farm, Funan Showsuite and The Mill.
For families and individuals who are interested in sustainability, Citizen Farm will provide a look at how they are going about producing safe and locally-grown fresh food.
An urban farm located behind Queenstown Public Library, Citizen Farm’s farming model emphasises growing the best produce with minimal waste. Techniques which they have adopted include composting and upcycling.
During The City Ramble Process programme at Citizen Farm, participants will also be able to view a tiny house on wheels, learn how plants are used for interior styling and hear from textile artist Agy about her interactive art installation made from natural-dyed fabrics.
Separate programmes have been lined up at the other two stops, Funan Showsuite and The Mill.
Workshops will also be conducted at the Citizen Farm, Funan Showsuite and The Mill as part of The City Ramble Design Trails. These include a family-friendly handmade jewellery workshop at Citizen Farm and a resin art workshop at Funan Showsuite. These workshops are ticketed separately.
The City Ramble Heritage
Another aspect of The City Ramble Design Trail is the Heritage track. This features three-hour-long tours of historically and architecturally significant sites around Singapore. Stops on the City Ramble Heritage tour include The Quadrant at Cecil, Goh Loo Club and The Warehouse Hotel and will feature various speakers at each stop.
The City Ramble Stories
You can also pick up a copy of The City Ramble Stories, a creative urban guide that profiles young creative professionals in Singapore under the age of 35. The guide includes a walking trail of locations around the city that have inspired these young creatives.
