National Gallery Singapore’s biennial children’s festival, Small Big Dreamers, returns for its second edition with a digital twist from 1 June 2020 to 28 March 2021!
Alongside #GalleryAnywhere, #SmallBigDreamersAtHome is part of a concerted effort of key initiatives aimed at bringing more art experiences to its audiences, even while the Gallery remains temporarily closed due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation. Following the introduction of new weekly activities on Gallery Kids! during the May school holidays, #SmallBigDreamersAtHome is the first online art festival in Singapore that serves up a series of fun and engaging activities for children aged six to 12, featuring interactive games, and easy-to-follow, hands-on activities designed to let them unleash their inner artist while learning about artworks within the National Collection and beyond.
Children’s adventures take place on the new #SmallBigDreamersAtHome interactive site, inspired by the art of five artists in Singapore and Southeast Asia. Holding focus groups with children, the Gallery allowed little ones to shape the festival by selecting artworks they wanted #SmallBigDreamersAtHome to be based on, namely Tropical Fruits by Georgette Chen, Horizontals I by Choy Weng Yang, Gamelan Orchestra by Sudjana Kerton, and Dungun Siri II by Ruzaika Omar Basaree. Completing this line-up is Singaporean artist Yeo Shih Yun, whose work, My INK-credible Adventure, focuses on the medium of ink painting.
When: 1 Jun 2020 - 28 Mar 2021,
Venue/Organizer: National Gallery Singapore
