Yes we have just wrapped up the Singapore Supersized series on Okto. A series where art is a tool to bring different communities in Singapore together, with supersized art projects never been attempted or seen before! With the brightest minds in the industry working to bring their art form into the city, heartlands and more, witness as people from all walks of life let loose their creativity and unite for arts’ sake! 50 or more participants are only given 3 days to execute, how will they pull of their supersized task?
With over 400 participants in the course of 6 episodes and different art forms ranging from percussion to video installation combined, it was definitely a supersized treat for us to bring it to life.
The good news is Singapore Supersized’s programme format is available for you to adapt to any country. For example, Malaysia Supersized, Japan Supersized and China Supersized. Write to us if you’re keen!
