Games, anyone? trying luck Are you game? Give it a try

Sunday, 25 June, marked the last day of Singapore Arts Festival 2006. One segment of the month-long arts celebration I particularly enjoyed was Arts On The Move, a series of free events for the masses held in public parks, town centres and shopping districts. I always believe that arts should find places where it can reach out to majority people and not be confined to posh looking, upmarket, air-conditioned theatres and galleries for the arty farty groups. No doubt arts is valuable and even priceless, but it should never be perceived by the common folks as something exquisite and expensive and out of reach.

The pictures you see here were taken recently when the troupe for Arts On The Move came to my neighbourhood. From the smiling faces in the pictures, it is obvious that a break away from the usual monotonous Friday evening was very much welcomed by the heartlanders.
