Arts in Your Neighbourhood November 2019
The arts don’t just happen in the theatres, on concert stages or in black boxes. Arts in Your Neighbourhood (AYN) brings fun and enriching arts experiences right to your doorstep! AYN comprises a series of interactive arts programmes performed and facilitated by established artists and arts groups at various locations across the island.
This November, we travel to the north-east of Singapore to rediscover the neighbourhood of Punggol, with arts activities happening from 7 to 24 November 2019.
Audience will be treated to a delightful line-up of over 40 arts and cultural activities, ranging from dance, music and theatrical performances, to interactive visual art installations and hands-on activities.
Outside of Punggol, other arts activities will be happening across the island including Bedok Town Square, Toa Payoh HDB Hub Atrium, Our Tampines Hub, Hillion Mall and Yishun Town Square. There are a total of 13 locations.
Families with kids can look forward to programmes suited for young audiences, including:
