Playeum, Children's Centre for Creativity

Playeum opened Singapore's first locally grown non-profit Children's Centre for Creativity on 19 September 2015 at Gillman Barracks. Its visions and mission embrace a commitment to the value of play, the arts and creativity in the lives of young children. The Centre presents themed hands-on exhibitions that change once a year and is open to ALL families to visit and explore.

Current Hands-on Exhibition:

I-Opener: Play with the Senses

14 May 2019 to 26 April 2020

I-Opener features the aesthetic and sensory play-worlds inspired by the artistic designs and creations of four artists with a disability, Dr Dawn-joy Leong, Cavan Chang, Sol Pickens and Jo Devadason. Co-curated and produced by Playeum's Creative Directors Imran Mohamad and Dr. Esther Joosa, and Tech Catalyst Din Chan, the exhibition invites children aged 1 to 12 to explore their senses through play and the arts.
