About The Team


3Pumpkins is a socially-engaged arts organisation that runs Tak Takut Kids Club (TTKC), a children and youth community club in Boon Lay Drive. TTKC aims to build a happier and safer environment for young persons aged 7-14 from vulnerable backgrounds. It is a key partner of ComLink @ Jurong West in the exploration of upstream interventions in integrated social support. In support of improving community health, the club is also a key community partner of Movements for Health (M4H) project. 

TTKC is funded by Singapore Together Movement, with support from Quantedge Foundation (Singapore), GIC and Chew How Teck Foundation. The M4H project is funded by Tote Board and MOH Office for Healthcare Transformation (MOHT) and supported by The Majurity Trust.


Shiyun is the Founder and Executive Director of 3Pumpkins. Since 2016, Shiyun has conducted extensive practice research to discover the lived realities of children from less privileged backgrounds. Rather than focusing the lens on poverty, she firmly believes that practitioners should focus on studying and re-connecting self and social relations for  individuals living on the edge.

Working with multi-disciplinary practitioners from the arts, science, permaculture, to government officials as well as with the community member themselves, Shiyun’s body of work cuts through conventional categories with the aim of delivering the most social impact for the community she serves. Her work is most fully embodied in Tak Takut Kids Club, a community children and youth centre serving the families of Boon Lay Drive, Singapore.
