The lush arts enclave of Goodman Arts Centre will open its doors at Tanjong Goodman (#TanjongGoodman2016) a week later. The annual Open House, in its fifth season, will feature a full day of art adventures from performances to visual art workshops.
This year’s edition of #TanjongGoodman2016 continues to encourage families to spend the day together to enjoy the arts. Family art collective, Holycrap, will stage an exhibition, When Renndom Met Airany and also share first-hand their experiences in a talk, Forever and a Day, on creating art together as a family. Two separate community artworks by the Centre’s visual arts tenants – Justin Lee and Kamal Dollah – will also provide the opportunities for families and the public to collaborate to make their mark on blank canvases.
An added feature of the Festival is a specially commissioned interactive tour of the Centre by Sweet Tooth, the outreach arm of CAKE Theatrical Productions. As the history of Goodman Arts Centre remains a mystery to many, this tour provides the perfect opportunity to discover the secrets of Goodman Arts Centre. Embark on this tour as the performers lead a walk through the lush greenery of the Centre.
