The Greenhouse Sessions #21
Embedded Artists in Residential Spaces
Why are residential spaces important to community development? How do different spaces contribute to that end? Where and what are the possibilities for arts practices in residential spaces?
This panel brings together diverse organisations to examine different approaches to the use of residential spaces in community-based projects. How can artistic practice intersect with approaches of housing, health and culture? What inspirations do residential spaces offer?
Melissa Sim (Senior Community Relations Manager, Community Relations Group) will share the intentions and outcomes behind the Housing & Development Board Lively Spaces Programme, while Edwina Tang (Deputy Director, Engagement & Participation) will talk about the National Arts Council’s approach and experiences with Arts In Your Neighbourhood. From the health paradigm, Evon Chua (Senior Manager, Population Health & Community Transformation) will provide deeper insights on Yishun Health’s use of community development and creative approaches in their Wellness Kampongs. Joining them will also be Hasyimah Harith (Company Manager, P7:1SMA) who will share the company’s understanding and approach to residential spaces as well as how it is integral to their practice as an independent dance company.
The sharing will be followed by a Q&A session and discussion with all participants.
