Gallery Children’s Biennale 2021

May 22, 2021 - December 31, 2021

Learning through play : a series of exciting programmes – captivating storytelling sessions, interactive movement exercises, parent-child sound exploration workshops and more. 2021 offers a hybrid exhibition format featuring online and on-site artworks.

Every artwork in the Biennale empowers children with a renewed sense of empathy and confidence to engage with the ever-changing world around them.  The range of programmes offered for children and families aim to inspire young minds with artistic experiences that can transform a child’s understanding of the world around them, and what is creatively possible with a focus on acceptance, openness and diversity.

Physical installations available at the National Gallery Singapore till 4 September.

This year, artists address the theme Why Art Matters. The new online interactive works and physical installations from nine artists from Singapore and Southeast Asia offer interactive online games, storytelling sessions, workshops, animated stories and the making of digital art.

Conversations with an Octopus by artist Sandra Lee, encouraging children to discuss environmental topics such as climate change.

For children 3 years and younger – a series of visual and sound explorations to discover

For children between 8 and 12 years – art projects to explore themes in the artists’ works

This Biennale allows children to co-create with established international artists on the festival’s microsite and contribute to their installations at the museum from September. The microsite will be shared on the digital platforms of Groningen Museum, Netherlands.
