About the Programme

How many local folktales do you know?

By referencing stories such as Badang the Strong to the story of How Singapura Got Its Name, participants in this workshop will learn not only how to create and retell beloved Singapore stories which are strong in local flavours, but the fundamentals of what makes a story exciting and meaningful?  

Join Hidayah Amin, author of The Malay Annals: Attack of the Garfish and Other Adventures, and create your very own story with a local flair. 

This programme is suitable for children aged 7-12.
