Playing With & For The Community
Every individual has dreams for a better future, be it for us or for our loved ones. However in this age and time, we tend to be a little too busy to sit down and ponder about the dreams and aspirations we had previously thought out for ourselves.
The future is literally in our hands to mould as we like. We should not wait until tomorrow. Tomorrow is now.
‘Our Future’, a collaboration community project with Paya Lebar – Kovan Community Centre took place last Saturday afternoon at Kovan Hub as part of the PAssionArts Village. The project reminds the community to find time and reflect on their dreams and aspirations. It gathers both the young and the young at heart to illustrate their dreams on a communal board to show creative support in their community.
Together with SCYA, Deusa Blumke managed to bring children and their parents together to write and colour their ambitions and aspirations for the future. The painting connected the contributions of over 300 participants on a 5m by 6m canvas using “paper people” displaying interesting illustrations of many individuals.

The event took place on 27th April (Saturday) from 11am to 5pm, bringing together the Guest of Honour, Prof Brian Lee Chang Leng and many residents from the Paya Lebar – Kovan estates to join in celebrating the overall cultural theme of the festival village, “Our Past, Our Present, Our Future”.
With this project taking place in the middle of the Hub, it attracted both the young and the old to come and contribute their interesting hopes and aspirations for the future.
One of the interesting contributions found, “I want to strike TOTO 1st Prize so that I can retire!”
Assuring positivity for the future from the residents!
