Words on Wheels Southeast Asian Art Programme "WoW SEA Art Programme"
HundrED has not validated this innovation
Why did you create this innovation?
We aspire to improve the quality of art education in Southeast Asian schools by providing specialised programmes that address the needs of Southeast Asian communities, creating safe spaces for open discussions, self-expression, and creation in Southeast Asian communities. We harness the intrinsic cultural value of Southeast Asian heritage to support their creative economies and ecosystems.
How does your innovation work in practice?
Commissioned by the Singapore International Foundation, the WoW SEA Art Programme consists of three programmes: the Art Programme, Volunteer Training Programme and Online Training Programme; to support volunteers and educators on their teaching journey in the post-pandemic world. We apply three core teaching methodologies: Visual Thinking, Social Emotional Learning and Experiential Learning, to provide a holistic framework toward harnessing the capacities and creativities of young learners and the communities that care for them.
How has it been spreading?
With the help of volunteers from Singapore, we will be implementing the WoW SEA Art Programme in 10 partner schools in Indonesia, under the aegis of Our Better World, the digital storytelling initiative of the Singapore International Foundation from June to December 2022.
