3Pumpkins is a non-profit arts company developed with a vision to build stronger communities through inclusive arts-based platforms that connect and build positive relationships. The key values in our work include:
Commitment to people:
We spend time on the ground to discover and respond to real social issues that require interventions.
Diversity and teamwork:
We involve members of the public, agencies and experts across multiple sectors.
Integrity and innovation:
We consistently evaluate and improve our strategy to achieve authentic social objectives.
Our core programmes are:
3P Community Building Programme, a multi-pronged approach to engage children and youth in the neighbourhood using community building, place-making and arts engagement tools.
Digital platforms 大声D茶室/Warung Cakap Apa and Kids Stay Home, borne out of Covid-19 pandemic and designed with the aim to close generational gaps.
Participatory projects where we work with partners and artists across sectors and disciplines to explore arts engagement that connect and strengthen communities.
Since 2016, our work has been featured in Zaobao, The Straits Times and National Arts Council’s publication Impacting Communities Through the Arts (2018). Seeing the Obvious was awarded Cities of Love (2019) for social sustainability and 大声D茶室/Warung Cakap Apa was quoted by DPM Heng Swee Keat as one of the first creative initiatives to engage isolated seniors during Covid-19 outbreak. Our managing artistic director, Lin Shiyun, received a 2-year (2019-2021) research grant by National Arts Council on discovering community development methods through the arts.
3Pumpkins was formally registered in April 2019 as a public company limited by guarantee. Our company sponsors include Berries - World of Learning and private donors.
