How was Singapore like 50 years, 200 years or even 1000 years ago? This Children’s Season, let’s investigate and reimagine our past through poetry. Led by poet and performer Deborah Emmanuel, we will start the workshop with simple poetry approaches and ideas in the setting of NUS Museum’s Radio Malaya: Abridged Conversations About Artexhibition. Participants will then get a chance to write their very own poem and interpret them in their own unique ways through some crafts!
About the Poet Deborah Emmanuel (b.1988) is a Singaporean poet, performer, and four-time TEDx speaker. She has featured at festivals including the Makassar International Writers Festival and the Queensland Poetry Festival. Her work has shown in places like New York City, Berlin, Kathmandu, London and Melbourne.
Deborah’s first collection, When I Giggle In My Sleep, was published by Red Wheelbarrow Books early 2015. Her foray into creative non-fiction, Rebel Rites, launched in 2016. When not making poems, Deborah makes music with Wobology, The Ditha Project, Mantravine and Kiat, performs on stage and screen and facilitates workshops. Her most recent work experiments with moving poetry into the physical body and the practice of intuitive illustration.
Children’s Season Singapore is jointly presented by National Heritage Board and Museum Roundtable.
