Various Locations

Journey to the east of Singapore with Arts in Your Neighbourhood this March, as we explore the town of Tampines, once home to sand quarries, prowling tigers, and coconut plantations.

5 new public artworks around Tampines invite you to engage with the people and environment around you in new ways, while an installation by a local visual artist puts a twist on familiar motifs of daily life in the heartlands.

Immerse yourself in the soundscapes of Tampines, as unexpected spaces like markets and carparks come alive with pop-up music and dance performances. Recordings of everyday sounds and stories form the foundation of new tracks by local electronic musicians, while compositions by Tampines residents are performed from a musical truck.

Beyond Tampines, exciting arts experiences await you and the whole family at various other spaces islandwide. Transform an ordinary day into something magical, with fantastical time-travelling operatic singers, short story “vending machines”, and bite-sized classical music pieces.

With more than 50 arts activities happening at 16 locations across the island, there is something suitable for everyone. See you at our events!

Arts in Your Neighbourhood is a programme by the National Arts Council. This programme aims to provide enriching arts experiences for everyone at their doorsteps, and consists of interactive arts programmes by established artists and arts groups held at various spaces across the island.
