AN EXPLOSION OF IMAGINATION, WHERE BOUNDARIES UNLOCKED
Themed “Prism of Imagination” at the fifth edition of inclusive arts festival by Club Rainbow (Singapore)
An initiative by Club Rainbow (Singapore), the fifth edition of Dreamseeds Arts Fest will return from 28 November to 2nd December in a digital fashion for the very first time as we face challenges from the current pandemic. As we continue to look ahead and reflect on how our beneficiaries have come so far on this journey with Club Rainbow – of self-discovery, creativity, perseverance and empowerment.
This year’s programme responds to the theme Prism of Imagination, exploring how our budding artists draw inspiration from their surroundings, personal and shared stories, as well as with the world at large. We hope to replace preconceived notions with wonderful explosions of imagination, dreams, and enthusiasm, where boundaries can be unlocked. This year’s festival logo is also created by beneficiary Mass Amirah who attended the Visual Arts Mentorship programme led by artist-illustrator Soh Eeshaun.
The festival concept will continue into the next festival edition in 2021, signalling our commitment to deepen the engagement and collaborations for our beneficiaries; further refining their artistic ideas, processes and presentations.
“Dreamseeds Arts Fest is an annual programme where we allow our young people and children to develop to their full potential. It allows them to enrich lives and to develop to their full potential and to demonstrate what they are capable of” says Club Rainbow’s patron – Speaker Tan Chuan-Jin, giving his moral support in the pre-recorded opening speech.
The virtual festival will comprise several key components, namely the Virtual Art Gallery, Performing Arts Concert, Daily Fest Activities such as workshops and talks. At the Launch Event on the first day of the festival on 28 November 2020, we will be officially opening the 5 days long festival with the Performing Arts concert and the art gallery to mark the start of the event.
