Our world is changing and becoming increasingly complex and unsafe. Hence, it is of great importance to help our young to develop practical skills for mindfulness and learn how to cope with the changes as well as become agents for social change.
This 2-day holiday camp will take on a process-oriented approach to engage children in discovering more about themselves and the world that they are living in. Using the chosen story/ picture as a stimulus, children will use drama tools, such as Role-Play and Creative Movement to explore dramatic play, creating scenarios from the story that will highlight themes relevant to their lives. Through a variety of child led activities, children will explore the use of drama strategies to establish character relationships, understand situations and come up with ideas to solve problems.
There will be a family engagement segment on Day 2, where the parents will be invited to participate alongside with their children to co-create their image of a better world through different artistic mediums.

• Engaging children in the process of learning in and through the arts
