July Sketchwalk at National Museum of Singapore



Hi Sketchers!

We are collaborating with National Museum of Singapore (NMS) for the exhibition "OFF / ON: Everyday Technology that Changed our Lives, 1970s – 2000s" for July 2022 Sketchwalk on 30 July 2022 (Sat). Here’s the summary of this exhibition:
“Step into this immersive showcase and explore how everyday technological tools changed and shaped the lives of Singaporeans from the 1970s to 2000s. Set against the backdrop of the nation's industrialisation and rapid transformation period, the showcase takes visitors through familiar local settings at home, work and other social spaces with a small, yet specially curated selection of technology icons from Singapore's past. These include the typewriter and personal computer, as well as telecommunications and entertainment devices such as the payphone, pager and the technicolour television set. Presented as part of the National Museum's Collecting Contemporary Singapore initiative, visitors can look forward to getting to know and reconnecting with some of these technologies, through several themed installations with complementary gamified experiences including an escape room activity.”
For more information, you can check out the link:
You are welcome to sketch in this exhibition for a duration of one hour. This is to allow others to sketch in the next time slot and to avoid crowding. Sign up is on first-come-first-served basis. A brief introduction will also be given by a NMS staff about the exhibition. The two time slots are as appended:
Slot 1 (max 30 pax): 10am to 11am

- For non-Singaporean: By registering with us, it facilitates the ticket fee waiver. Please note that this is strictly for urban sketchers only, not for family and friends of the sketcher who might tag along
The registration period is from 25 July (Mon) to 28 July (Thu) 2359hrs. If the selected time slot is full, we will notify you via Instagram message.
However, if all the time slots are taken before the registration period ends, we will announce on Instagram and Facebook event page, and will close this page.

Result of June Sketchwalk

Sketchwalk at Crawford on last Saturday of the month ie 25 Jun 2022. 

I don't normally take photos at sketchwalks but since I was helping with the scanning station for our upcoming September exhibition at Singapore Botanic Garden, I took the opportunity to take some photos with sketchers. 

 Thanks for the friendship and memories. Kudos to the current leadership for growing the community.
