“Culture enlarges our spirits; connects us to our past, our future, and each other; and enables the imagination and empathy that support individual and collective resilience.” ~ Arlene Goldbard

Arts practices have the unique capacity to enable the expression of community values, goals and identity. Through such cultural action, we make sense of our existence and environment; we learn from our past, imagine our future and evolve creative solutions to address the increasingly complex challenges of our present.

In this session, we explore the role of arts and artists in bringing about systemic change and how we can create the conditions for creative collaborations between the arts, communities and the social sector. Joining us to give her insights into this topic is the Director of Arts and Community at the National Arts Council, Ms Chua Ai Liang.

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.
