Post Category - Fun + GamesFun + Games
  • Light projections on the ArtScience Museum at 8.15pm, 8.30pm, 8.45pm, 9.15pm, 9.30pm, 9.45pm, 10.15pm and 10.30pm.
  • The Merlion projections from 8pm to 11.30pm at 15-minute intervals.
Starting 29 Dec to 31 Dec, the façades of the Artscience Museum and the Merlion will be brought to life with animated light projections as part of the Build a Dream initiative, presented by the Marina Bay Singapore Countdown 2019 in partnership with the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC).
As part of the initiative, artworks created by students and beneficiaries of local schools and welfare organisations will be transformed into a series of dazzling light projections on the facades of key landmarks around Marina Bay – namely The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, ArtScience Museum and the Merlion. Artworks at ArtScience Museum are created by artists from the CPAS Goodwill Rehabilitation & Occupational Workshop (GROW) and students under the care of the AWWA Special Student Care Centre (SSCC). Students from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) were invited to contribute their artworks through an open call for submissions and the selected artworks will be projected at the Merlion.
The Build a Dream initiative is a collective effort to support the less fortunate in fulfilling their dreams and personal development, and also aims to raise funds to help set up scholarships and bursaries for needy students pursuing an education in the arts.

The artworks by CPAS at ArtScience Museum were created by artists from the CPAS Goodwill Rehabilitation & Occupational Workshop (GROW) under the guidance of CPAS Special Arts instructor, Mr Patrick Yee. Established in September 1984, GROW is a special workshop that provides vocational training and sheltered employment for adults aged 18 years old and above with
cerebral palsy and multiple disabilities.

One of the light projections on the ArtScience Museum is by 19-year old Elaine Eng who has cerebral palsy and so draws using only her mouth. Entitled “My hope and dream: To be proud”, the picture features bright colours and reflects her positive personality. Her dream is to do Singapore proud and she has represented Singapore in international competitions for her talent in Boccia, a Paralympic ball sport.

Members of the public who wish to help the talented youths from these schools and welfare organisations fulfil their dreams and aspirations can do so via
