ACT 3i Festival for Children 2016

I'm the bad Mama who instead of sharing the things to do to prepare your child for the upcoming exam, I share family activities, workshops and plays for you to go or attend during the holidays.  Today, I share with you another exciting festival that is worth going, the ACT 3i Festival for Children that is happening from 24 May to 05 June 2016 at Drama Centre.

About the Festival
The ultimate aim is to give young audiences a unique and memorable experience that is different from broad-based children’s entertainment to enrich their lives through Arts and Culture. For this festival, we worked with renowned and emerging children’s theatre companies that are exploratory in nature and who are ever ready to challenge pre-conceptions.

What to Expect
ACT 3 International, Singapore’s leading Arts company for the young, is proud to announce the launch of a brand new ACT 3i Festival for Children dedicated to children from 2 to 12 years old. Packed with exquisite, high quality and awe-inspiring theatre performances that will include original works from Singapore, Italy, Sweden, Argentina, the U.K and Canada, an artfully curated visual arts programme, as well as Conviviality Sessions led by Children’s Theatre artists that are aimed at educators and parents, ACT 3i Festival for Children aims to be the frontrunner in arts enrichment for the young.  Click here to read more about the individual performances.

The With the many visiting artists and practitioners coming with their productions for the Festival, there will be workshops as well organised for parent-and-child groups on weekends. The artistes of the productions will lead the sharing-and-learning sessions and will use their know-how from their chosen art form and practice to conduct workshops on creative parenting, empowerment through artistic engagement, and how to value add to child development through the creative process. There will be eight workshops for parent-and-child groups and all will be held at Drama Centre.


A visual arts sense-sibility exhibition suitable for 4 ot 8 year olds, workshop and storytelling session at ION Art Gallery, ION Orchard from 28 May to 5 June 2016, 10.30am to 12.30pm OR 3.30pm-5.30pm.

Held in conjunction with ACT 3i Festival for Children is Sweet, an interactive drop-off workshop comprising an art exhibition, art making activities, a show, as well as drama workshop and art making activities. The programme is a brilliant learning process for the child as it ignites the imagination, inspires a multi-sensory creative process, as well as encourages artistic expression and participation. Inspired by Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Sweet will feature elements of storytelling, improvisation and even gelato-making. While the session is about using desserts to inspire art-making and to teach the values of kindness, it also highlights the importance of eating in moderation.
