Touch It, Hear It, Express It
In our noisy and hectic world, reconnect our basic senses through an experiential journey of sound-scapes, tactile-scapes and written expressions.
The Living Arts Series, now in its 4th season, aimed to connect the public to the arts through understanding how much the arts are already a part of our lives. From November 15-18 2012, we re-created the space in the Cultural Activities Hall of the Sai Wan Ho Civic Centre into an experiential hour of sound-scapes, tactile-scapes and written expressions.
Explore the surfaces of a great range of textures and objects with hands.
Listen to sounds emitted from around the venue and absorb what is on offer.
Express their imaginative encounters with objects, materials and sounds through writing.
As participants touch, listen and write, they are asked to reflect on questions about learning: what and how are you learning?
Panel Discussion on Theatre & Learning
On November 17 2012, there was a special panel convened within the space for an open discussion on Theatre & Education using the Urban/Jungle Journey experiential project as the springboard. Led by Vincent Wong, the dialogue with invited guests from different walks of life reviewed arts learning as it is and plot different approaches forward.
