Background
Migration of peoples has been happening for centuries, and through play, it brings us back to a realisation that many countries, including Singapore, are nations of immigrants.

Boats is inspired by the stories and experiences of children in Braybrook, Melbourne, who, together with their families, were asylum seekers. These children already have a dramatic relationship with the sea and with the idea of arrival at a strange land.

Through their drawings, ideas and play, Polyglot artists create a joyous but thought-provoking response to what is a fraught and current situation across the globe.
