[PRESSPLAY] WORDPLAY – Narrative Frames Screening

February 11 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

This programme is part of the National Library Board’s PRESSPLAY, an annual youth festival aimed to celebrate the impact of arts in young people’s lives. Now in its fourth year running, PRESSPLAY collaborates with local studios, independent artisans and design collectives to offer a myriad of arts programmes from 14 Jan – 18 Mar 2017. For more information, visit our Facebook page.

Held in November 2016, Narrative Frames is a PRESSPLAY mentorship programme conducted in partnership with Marc Nair. Held across seven weeks, participants of this programme were tasked to write, perform and film a series of spoken word videos.

As we debut their works in this session, our participants will also share their creative process of writing, shooting and editing their Narrative Frames projects.

Mentees:
Al Hafiz Sanusi, Angeline Lim,
Elancharan Gunasekaran, Jacqueline Lee
Kimberly Lim, Sheralyn Loh, Sofia Ayu
