Celebrate the beautiful Mid-Autumn season with the 17th edition of Moonfest! Expect a hybrid festival with on-site traditional arts performances (17 to 19 Sep) and digital programmes (till 3 Oct).
For a fun parent-child activity, “What’s in a Chinese Surname” explores the clues to our ancestry by digging deeper into the roots of what each surname means. Psst: there’s also a string art-making session in this workshop!
Alternatively, let your little ones experience storytelling the old school way with “DIY Shadow Play Box”. Here, stories are told through silhouettes of shadow puppets, made with everyday objects.
If you’re looking for quality time with your child while celebrating the season, try “Paper Lantern-Making” using simple craft materials. Just let your creativity flow!
Wanna reconnect with Chinese cultural roots? The workshop “Of Ink, Music & Mind” invites you for a Chinese ink painting sesh accompanied by the melodic sounds of traditional Chinese instruments.
Get moving with ”Xiqu Movement Workshop – A Different Tradition”, where you’ll experience the wonders of traditional Chinese opera. From basic movements and techniques to understanding its key features, you’ll get a hands-on opportunity to immerse yourself in this traditional art form.
