Weekends at The Artground – 7th and 8th December

From 4th October 2019 till 22nd March 2020, we present The Curious Sky by Ng Fongyee, a multi-sensory arts space inspired by elements of the weather. We often talk about the weather, but have we ever truly experienced the full spectrum of what it can bring? Come and join us to sing in the rain, dance with the rainbow, hear the thunder rumble or simply look up for the endless possibilities The Curious Sky brings you. Entry into The Artground itself is free and donations are encouraged.

Ticketed Programmes
The Artground occasionally plays host to ticketed performances and workshops. Patrons are required to purchase tickets online if you’d like to attend. (Link provided below)

Drop-in Programmes
This weekend, The Artground is organising 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, which you can pay in the queue just before the programme starts. There is no registration for these activities as they are first come, first served (unless stated otherwise). 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 A Worms Love Coffee is for the first 20 children between 2 – 3 years).

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.
