Have you ever wonder what will you learn in performing arts majors?

few weeks ago, we organised a session with NAFA (Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts) Lecturer's in Mandarin!

Swipe left to see how it looks like! 😍👉

If you have any questions about study in Singapore, feel free to message us! 💌

We are at Labrador Park again this week! Can’t get enough of the gorgeous views.

A good run with these peeps 🙂

(In view of tightened safety measures, look out for updates from the urban runners WhatsApp chat group on the next run)

Presenting: the CEO of getting her inspiration from everywhere — Advertising graduand and Best Graduate Wu Tong ( @wutongwutong )!

🤪✨

Wu Tong is inspired by random objects and movies, and enjoys the process of ideating most as she gets to unleash her creativity, despite the occasional struggles to translate these ideas into graphics. 😣🖌

While studying, Wu Tong picked up various skills which were relevant to the creative industry, and she aspires to set up her own advertising studio. You go, girl! 🏠

Catch Wu Tong and the rest of the Class of 2021 at NAFA's virtual Convocation Ceremony on 10 September at 4pm. Tune in at www.nafa.edu.sg/convocation2021 🎓

Let's get dreamy with Music graduand and Best Graduate Tsai Gin Tzu ( @tzaiangela )~ 🕺✨


While recitals are nerve-wracking for many, Gin Tzu feels a sense of achievement and pride than anything else. The practices were long and tedious — but her lecturers, friends, and family helped to keep her going. 🎹

Gin Tzu also expresses her excitement in creating music, be it through performing, teaching, or collaborating after graduation. 🎼💓

Join Gin Tzu, together with our NAFA Class of 2021, who will take the stage at the virtual Convocation Ceremony on 10 September, 4pm at www.nafa.edu.sg/convocation2021

Tsai Gin Tzu, Best Graduate Award, BMus (Hons). #NAFAOriginals #NAFAConvocation2021 #GraduatesAtNAFA #LifeAtNAFA

Pursuing passion in a post-pandemic market — sounds impossible...

😔 Spatial Design graduand and Best Graduate Hong Weiming ( @hong_weiming ) thinks OTHERWISE! ✅

Weiming created Project Off-Line, where he reimagined the Dakota Crescent flats as repurposed studios for the community's artisans. These facilities not only include studio and retail spaces, but also communal and collaborative spaces to provide opportunities for the artisans to engage with one another. 👭👬

Despite being a 10-year veteran in the design industry, NAFA managed to push him beyond the limits and remind him there's always more room for improvement! 🏆🏃‍♂️

Join Weiming and the NAFA Class of 2021 at virtual Convocation Ceremony on 10 September at 4pm: https://www.nafa.edu.sg/convocation2021

When it comes to fashion, you can truly find inspiration pretty much everywhere.

💛 Just like this lovely bicycle that was parked right opposite my college @nafa_sg in Singapore. In this case, colour blocking is so evident with the contract of teal and brick red. It can be a fast food chain’s logo or even a random book cover… but using these combinations can make your outfit really pop! If it looks good to you, chances are it’ll look great on you too! ✨🚲

and just like that, on a random Monday afternoon, the three best years of my life came to an end.

What if .. we had a Singapore River Goddess?

🤔 Visualised as a feminine deity, the Singapore River is mapped as a yantra – a mystical sacred-geometric diagram often utilised in Hindu and Buddhist tantric rituals.

Their eyes closed shut as they embraced their own body
Thin as it may be

It is a body overflowing with vigour

They wiped away beads of sweat from their faces
Sunken as their cheeks may be
They possess the quality still
Of canvas from which a sweet smile could blossom

A traditional musical performance genre of the Minnan community in the Fujian province of southern

China, Nanyin (南音) is an important cultural heritage for many Chinese Singaporeans whose ancestors were Southern Chinese immigrants to Nanyang (South Seas) and the Southeast Asian lands. Nanyin serves as a reminder of the history and heritage of Singapore, which is not only a global city-state but also an important catalyst of arts and cultural activities in the region.

Performance of 'An Evening of Nanyin Jazz' at the Drama Centre Theatre, SIngapore, 2019.

The Nanyin pipa is one of the primary musical instruments and part of Nanyin’s shang si guan (上四管).

There are different types of pipa around the world but the pipa used in Nanyin has a crooked neck and can also be named nan pa (南琶).

The influence of the great traditions, including Indian, Chinese, Islamic, and Khmer, on native Southeast Asian music varies in different countries. For instance, Chinese-type musical instruments, the use of the Chinese pentatonic scale, and duple and quadruple time (typical Chinese metres) are commonly used in Vietnam, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos and Cambodia.

Similar to the pipa is the Vietnamese đàn tỳ bà. Played with a small plectrum, the đàn tỳ bà was associated with the royal court and is still used in the ensemble that performs at the Imperial Palace at Huế.

The lands of Southeast Asia are teemed with myths and folklore.

A mythical creature in Balinese mythology, the Barong is a fearsome beast and protector spirit of villages.

Mirror, mirror on the wall, what’s to come when life is naught🪞Done in the shape of an oval

hanging mirror, a hand embroidered portrait of mortality set against a wall of blooms contemplates on the universality of death and sweet vitality of life.

In the language of craft and art, symbols play an important role in articulating one’s inner world.

rorriM is a reflection of Myanmar born artist, Nyan Soe’s thoughts on growing as an artist. Consisting of a collection of intentionally crafted and found objects, how many items do you think are in this cabinet of curiosities?
