2017 is my 39th year in Singapore and as always, nothing stays the same and the changes keep on coming!
I’m honoured that the National Arts Council has promoted me onto the ENHANCED ARTS EDUCATION PROGRAMME - I am the first individual in the literary arts to be given this privilege. It enables me to tailor programmes (or devise new ones) to suit a school’s needs and to submit the proposal for approval, without having to wait for the biennial submission process to come around. Thanks to the quality of my track record, and the trainers I have worked with, the NAC expects to approve any submissions very rapidly indeed.
Stories Through Art
The National Gallery has appointed me to run this exciting free programme for kids aged 5 - 12 for the year . At each 45 minute session I, or one of my team (Chuah Ai Lin, Shalni Doshi and Alice Bianchi-Clark), will share stories inspired by one of six carefully selected art works - such as the National Language Class by Chua Mia Tee above. Open to primary schools & community groups. ENQUIRY
