Weekends at The Artground – 23rd and 24th February

From 24th January till 5th May 2019, we present Wild Rumpus –  an invitation into an imaginary world of creatures big, small, flurry or gentle, and to make friends whoever is hiding behind the corner. Embrace the world of tactile material and feel what it is like to hug, cuddle and squeeze into something out of the ordinary. Entry into The Artground itself is free and donations are encouraged.

This weekend, we have an array of our regular age-specific drop-in programmes as well as Ticketed Performance – TUG
Ticketed Programmes
The Artground occasionally plays host to ticketed performances and workshops. Patrons are required to purchase tickets beforehand to secure their slot.
TAG Drop-in Programmes
Every weekend, The Artground organises a variety of age-specific drop-in programmes that participants will get to enjoy on a first come, first served basis, inside our Whitebox. Each programme will be charged at $10 per parent-child pair. You can purchase a single ticket, TAG cards for 5 or 10 + 1 sessions at $50 and $100 respectively at the reception. There is no registration for these activities as they are first come, first served. An announcement will be made 5 mins before each programme and the first XX number of children in the queue will get to enjoy the programme (XX refers to the age-specified & capacity of the programme, ie Craftermusician! is for the first 20 children between 2 – 6 years old).

Please see schedule below for the programmes this weekend. There will be no need to pre-register on our website for entry into The Artground. Parents and carers will just need to register on our portable tablets on site.

[Ticketed Programme] Book tickets here.
