The Greenhouse Sessions #5
Community Engagement and the Path to Sustainability

Date and Time

Monday December 9 2013
7pm – 10pm

National Library Building
100 Victoria Street
The Pod
Singapore, 188064

What does community engagement look like in the context of community arts? We take a closer look at different models – the benefits as well as the limitations. What does the community artist need to be equipped with to ensure engagement is meaningful? More importantly, how does the community artist ensure sustainability not only in terms of funding, but also in areas such as vision, leadership and motivation to ensure that the impact of the work continues?

Joining us for this special session are friends from Drama Box, The Necessary Stage and The Finger Players who will provide examples and insights to these questions through the projects that they have done.

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.
