About the programme

Now Boarding: Wanderlusters, adventurers, culture enthusiasts.

Freediving is a great way to experience the ocean without cumbersome underwater breathing equipment. This month, we're featuring a special guest who loves freediving as well as travel, who will be sharing one of his recent freediving experiences in the Red Sea. 

Is freediving difficult? Is it safe? How does one train to become a freediver, and what are the best spots for freediving nearby and around the world? Come join us as our guest answers these questions. 

This programme is held onsite at library@orchard and also online on Zoom.

About Caravanserai

Communities: Caravanserai was previously titled Communities: Travel & Culture Explorers.

Learn to connect with people around the world. Develop a deeper understanding of regions far and near. Explore places beyond those regular tourist hangouts. Our community shows you how to develop cultural agility through interactions with diverse range of people all over the planet. We also invite you to share your experiences of places and people from your travels.

We run hybrid sessions - you can join us in person at library@orchard or online via Zoom.

About the series

Communities is an alternative learning environment where you can pick up a plethora of skills by sharing and experimenting with others. This series is built on the belief that teaching and learning can happen without a teacher.​​​​​
