3P Community Building Programme
3Pumpkins has been developing its community building practice since 2016 when it first began Let's Go Play Outside! (LGPO), a social practice that activates public playground as places to connect and engage children and families. In 2019, we developed 3P Community Arts Lab: Tak Takut Kids Club, a permanent social space for children in rental flat neighbourhoods.
Together with place-making project 'Seeing the Obvious', the process-driven work discovers issues on the ground and co-creates with community partners and residents using fun and out-of-the-box interventions.
Regardless of visual arts, music, or theatre, 3Pumpkins is interested in working with artists to produce a wide range of multi-disciplinary works which are participatory in nature.
Our most memorable productions include collaboration with Drama Box's Ignorland of its Loss - Dakota Crescent, and theatre director Danny Yeo (Child's Play 2017-2019, The Rubbish Prince 2019).
Current participatory projects include 'Stay Home Quilt' led by artist Jimmy Ong and 'Share an Umbrella' in partnership with Boon Lay Youth Network.
大声D茶室 / Cakap Warung Apa
Kids Stay Home
Born of out the need to create content in the vernacular to engage seniors in their social isolation during Covid-19 outbreak, a new digital channel 大声D茶室 / Cakap Warung Apa was created. The work is available online, as well as loaded onto portable radios which are distributed to seniors without digital access.
Concurrently, a series of 60 videos were created to provided ideas for parents and educators to engage children with creative projects at home.
