8 March – 19 March
ArtStories spent a week with students, residents and corporate volunteers from Feiyue Student Care Centre, Bukit Batok Secondary School, Hwa Chong JC and volunteers from Akzo Nobel to paint a total of 8 walls in the void deck of Bukit Batok West Constituency and in the compound of Feiyue Student Care Centre.
The whole exercise was an experience for young 5 Singaporean artists who had took time off to teach, facilitate and assist the large groups of students and corporate volunteers.
The design of the murals were a joint effort between ArtStories and Southwest Community Development Council to spread the awareness and principles of Recycling, Reusing and Reducing. It is important for Singaporeans to exercise the three Rs to cultivate a habit in caring for the environment. ArtStories was able to create a mural with narratives and explanation in ways that one can start practicing recycling habits.
Below are pictures from the community event which included student volunteers, corporate volunteers and residents contribution to the murals.
