Visitors heading to Little India tomorrow can look forward to art performances, workshops and murals as part of an annual public art project. Now in its sixth edition, Artwalk Little India will be held on Friday and Saturday, as well as on Jan 17 and 18, as part of Singapore Art Week. It is meant to bring to life the history and traditions of Little India, as well as the personal stories of its community.
Artwalk Little India has grown in popularity, with 260,000 visitors last year compared with 74,000 for its first edition in 2015. This year's edition, themed Passage of Time, was conceptualised by Lasalle artist and senior fellow Milenko Prvacki.
He hopes this project will help enhance visitors' understanding and perception of Little India as a cultural precinct, by interweaving various modes of art and performance, such as storytelling, dance and song.
