Fish Tales and Fish Tails – Workshop for Children by The Current Fellow, TBA21–Academy and writer Filipa Ramos


How do images lead to stories? And how do stories convey images?

In this workshop we will explore the stories that pictures of oceanic life and sites of environmental transformation tell and the images that stories summon. Together, we will write and enact one and many stories, thinking about how tales are told, inventing new ways of combining memory with discovery and imagination, and discussing the ways in which we share experiences, visions, and emotions with others. Parents or guardians will be invited to view the outcome of the workshop at 4pm. Designed for children aged 7 - 12.

This education programme is organised as part of NTU CCA Singapore's exhibition, The Oceanic.

Admission is free but registration is required. If you are registering for more than 1 child, please indicate the number of tickets you would like to register for.

For teachers registered under MOE who would like to bring their school groups, please write to NTUCCAEducation@ntu.edu.sg for application through NAC-AEP.
