Singapore, sadly, does not (yet?) have an dedicated children’s museum. Very soon, however, the National Museum of Singapore, in partnership with Playeum: The Play Museum, will kick off a six-week child-centered museum experience, The Playdome: Kaleidoscope of Dreams.
From May 14 to June 26, the Museum will present original works and interactive installations by a number of Singapore-based artists and creative professionals inspired by the galleries and the Museum’s iconic dome.

I am incredibly honored to be conducting four public storytelling/art/play workshops on June 25 and June 26 at the National Museum. I’ll be using my picture book, Mama’s Saris, to inspire aspiring writers and artists to explore words, colors, textures, and patterns and express themselves using their bodies, voices, and everyday objects.
My workshops will be held at 11am and 2pm on June 25 and June 26. Each workshop costs $33 for one chid and one parent/caregiver. (Ticket holders to the workshops are entitled complimentary admission to The PlayDome, the Singapore Galleries, and the Living Galleries on the same day.) Each workshop is limited to 12 pairs of participants, so do buy your tickets here soon if you are interested.
Don’t hesitate to leave a comment or email me if you have any questions.

There are a number of other fabulous workshops—a song-writing workshop with Corinne Gibbons, a storytelling workshop with Kamini Ramachandran, and a sensory workshop with Roundangle Theatre—and a host of free events. A full schedule can be found here.
