Gallery Children’s Biennale 2021 Goes Global

Unlock your child’s creativity in Singapore and around the world with the third edition of Gallery Children’s Biennale. Instead of the usual labyrinth of interactive artworks at National Gallery Singapore, the bi-yearly multi-sensorial art experience has returned with its first-ever hybrid edition.

The inaugural “phygital” edition kicked off with an online experience via a kaleidoscopic microsite on 22 May and will be followed by on-site art installations at National Gallery Singapore from 4 September 2021 through to December 2022. And that’s not the only first. With the microsite, the Biennale has also gone global for the very first time too, making its exciting arty programmes available to children all around the world.

Guided on the inquiry “Why Art Matters”, the Biennale highlights the importance of home, diversity, time and the environment through art and imaginative play. The curious kiddos can look forward to interactive online adventures, immersive storytelling sessions, and digital artmaking with local and international artists as well as fellow children from other countries. When it comes to the artworks, the Biennale is not short of eye-catching online works and on-site installations that families can engage with.

While we live in these changing times, the Biennale hopes to inspire children everywhere to navigate through life with empathy and confidence, all while nurturing critical skills such as curiosity, creativity and character-building. Plus, with an extended period that stretches till the end of next year, there’s ample time for the kids to tap into their imagination and explore their creativity. For more information, visit
