The Arts House Turns 10 and “disappears”


The Arts House celebrates its 10th Anniversary by “disappearing” from the scene!

In a tongue-in-cheek celebration of its 10th year milestone, The Arts House creates an alternative universe/history where a mega bookstore (The Next Page) has taken over the premises from its previous tenants – a dance club and a posh 5-star boutique hotel!

Conceptualised as an immersive visual and performance installation that takes over the entire building, The Next Page is the anchor show of our 10th celebrations. Audiences will be immersed in a House of re-imagined histories through site-specific performances written and performed by some of Singapore‟s brightest and emerging talents.

Enjoy a special promo when you purchase more than 10 tickets – $5 per ticket!

Silver Writing ~ Your Own Folk Tale

Silver Writing aims to provide lifelong learning for senior citizens through the art of creative writing. This 10-session programme is especially catered for seniors who are interested in writing and storytelling.

Organised by The Arts House in collaboration with U 3rd Age (University of the Third Age), the weekly workshops provide seniors with the basic tools of creative writing, as well as opportunities to visit Singapore’s historical places of interest to gain inspiration for their writing. They will also get to meet both local and international writers with a special trip to the Singapore Writers Festival in November! Seniors will also get a chance to read their completed works in a special showcase at the end of the programme at The Arts House.

This pilot programme uses fairytale and folk tale as a starting point for the writing exercises. Drawing on the stories they grew up with, seniors can learn to craft them into a story and tell them to their grandchildren.

Sharing by Caregivers and Recovering Patients

Coping with and conquering mental health illness is not easy, but many of our patients have successfully done so, thanks to their determination to recover and to strong support from their family. Caregivers can face immense challenges when caring for loved ones suffering from mental illness. Many of these patients and caregivers have become advocates of mental health and openly share their stories with the intention of destigmatising mental illness and inspiring others.
