Let’s Go Play Outside!

Community engagement
Let’s Go Play Outside is a weekly ground-up initiative launched in lower-income neighbourhoods to encourage children to engage socially and environmentally through play and the arts. I worked with artists to co-facilitate a diverse range of art and play activities including animation, print-making, music, photography, movement and writing to unite a community of children and elderly living in the rental flats in Toa Payoh. Beyond community-building, these relationships of mutual trust have bridged conversations about living with poverty, challenging family backgrounds, school and friendship struggles.

The Let’s Go Play Outside programme is now active in several other neighbourhoods and is led by 3Pumpkins founder Lin Shiyun.
