The Outer Space* is a street art trail around Bukit Panjang, curated by homegrown street artist ZERO, featuring 4 distinct outdoor works by SPAZ (in collaboration with The Super System), SYCO, TraseOne and Atomick. In this current age, public spaces and play areas are no longer as bustling as before as people spend more time in comfort of their own homes, consumed by digital spaces. In an attempt to view and embrace the unknown as a form of play and exploration, the artists engage with the community in Bukit Panjang through various activities, discovering interesting narratives unique to the neighbourhood!

The installation will feature a recording booth which will be setup in a public space in Bukit Panjang to collect stories from the community. These collected recordings, alongside soundscapes and music by artist Ng Sze Min of Artwave Studio will then form the 6-episode podcast series produced by Shophouse & Co. This pop-up installation will also feature interactive activities and a ‘community radio broadcast’ to create a memorable shared experience of the space.

The Podscape series will make its debut at Bukit Panjang as part of Arts in Your Neighbourhood before travelling to other neighbourhoods later in the year.

Rolling On by Rolypoly Family x The Kueh Tutus

Arts in Your Neighbourhood (AYN) is back 12 – 29 March 2020

Rolling On raises awareness of Earth Hour through a dance performance and parade. The performance is made from movements co-created between children and artists. In finding cyclical patterns in their bodies and in nature, they create specific dance moves to be performed together with audience-participants and animate the values behind the expression – “what goes around, comes around”.
