Goodman Arts Centre is a hive of 44 artists
and arts groups ranging from the visual arts to
theatre, music, dance and literary arts, making
it Singapore’s largest arts enclave. This section
introduces two of these artist-residents in every
issue, to allow you a sneak peek into the lives
and works of creators in Singapore.
Mental health is a state of well-being, where
we, as individuals, can realise our abilities,
cope with stress and lead productive lives in
our communities. Some common examples of
mental illness include anxiety, eating disorders
and postnatal depression. Social stigma and
misconception have altered our understanding of
mental health, often leading us to ignore the state
of our own mental health.

rehabilitation and reintegration of persons with
mental illness.
Eight SAMH centres provide counseling, caregiver
and peer support amongst a range of many other
services. At Goodman, the SAMH Creative Hub
uses tools such as movement, dance, music, art
making, visualization and imagery to promote
mental wellness.
With an extensive range of workshops – many of
which are free of charge, the SAMH Creative Hub
can help you to alleviate the stress of every day
life through many workshops like illustration and
acrylic painting.

original works inspired by society, culture, heritage and relationships.
T.H.E’s aesthetic is distinctly Asian, a powerful fluidity that is rooted in careful control of breath, a
constant in their works that discover what it means to be human.

2014: CREATING
PERFORMANCES –

Singapore Drama

Teachers and trainers are often tasked to create short but
complete performances with their students for different school
events. How does one create these with imagination and craft,
with limited resources, and still allow all involved to have fun, learn
and grow? These two workshops led by experienced facilitators
offer two possible methodologies.
Workshop: Devising Strategies by Patricia Toh (10am - 1pm)
Designed for educators keen on devising through the use of images,
the body and the environment. Participants will learn strategies
to generate material and create staging compositions, as well as
understand the nature and possible challenges of devising.
Workshop: 15 minutes of Drama by Marianne Sim (10 am - 1pm)
This workshop invites participants to have hands-on experience
in exploring written text. Through exploration of characters, their
dynamics and bringing them to life, through the use of drama
strategies and theatre conventions, participants will use dramatic text
to make performance meaningful and relevant to young audiences.
Forum: Competitions in Arts Education: Good or Bad?
(2pm - 4pm)
Join our panel of guests from various arts and educational
organisations as they take on the topic of arts competitions in
schools. Do medals and accolades serve the school or serve
to build the learning for participants? What are the effects of
competitions on students and teachers and what real purpose do
competitions want to achieve?
