Curiosity: The Spark for the Arts
by Jerrold Chong & Mark Wee

Tune in to @NACSingapore on Facebook
Available from 11 Nov (1pm) - 31 Dec

Journey through time in this animated video and explore how the arts in Singapore have grown across three decades. See if you can name the different art forms – from classical music to modern lively hip-hop dances. Try to spot re-envisioned cultural icons (like the Old National Theatre) and reimagined neighbourhoods together. As you watch (and re-watch) the video, get curious to find out more, or even try to create something of your own.
