Creative Placemaking: Lessons From IgnorLAND

Date and Time

Monday 9 May 2016
7pm – 9.30pm

National Library Building
100 Victoria Street
Possibility Room, Level 5
Singapore 188064.

Since 2007, through their IgnorLAND series of site-specific community arts projects, Drama Box has worked with various communities to excavate their collective memories of place, reflect common narratives and re-discover community assets and shared values.

In this session, Associate Artistic Director of Drama Box, Koh Hui Ling and Resident Artist, Han Xuemei will share their approach and insights gained from their place-based approach to community development. What is the significance of their work in a constantly changing landscape? Does arts engagement contribute to the physical and social character of these neighbourhoods?

Drawing upon examples from past projects as well as their ongoing work at Dakota Crescent, our guest speakers invite you to come engage in an open exchange about the possibilities of creative placemaking in Singapore.

FAQ about The Greenhouse Sessions

The Greenhouse Sessions is a programme by ArtsWok Collaborative. It is a community of practice where people who share a common concern for arts-based community development, teach one another to do it better through a process of regular engagement.

Our sessions involve:

  • Connecting with other experienced practitioners working in the field of arts in communities
  • Exchanging information, stories and personal experiences in a way that builds understanding and insight
  • Generating new knowledge and collaboration opportunities through this shared platform to kick-start meaningful action

As this is a community of practice, the sessions will be open only to those who have some experience or expertise related to the session, as well as individuals who have a keen interest to contribute to the topics of the session.

The emphasis here is on group learning, so while literature and other resources will be made available to participants from time to time, the collective wisdom of the community of practice is the real treasure. So come prepared to give and to receive.
