SINGAPORE: Next month, visitors will see more than verdant greenery at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park when the site becomes an “arts wonderland”.

This year’s edition of PAssionArts Festival will kick off with a three-day site-specific event called LandArts, which will see various types of installations and performances scattered all over the park. It will run from Jun 30 to Jul 2, with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong gracing the official opening on Jul 1.

This is one of the many events lined up by People’s Association (PA) for its sixth edition of the annual community arts event, which will run until Aug 5.

Carrying the theme Arts of Wonder, One Nation, the festival includes around 500 art activities and programmes to be held island-wide, including 48 festival villages.

PA group director for arts and culture, Nah Juay Hng, said the festival aims to “bring arts of quality and freshness to the community” as well as a way of encouraging residents to use art in the lead up to National Day on Aug 9.
