About Heart for Nature
The National University of Singapore’s Centre for Nature-based Climate Solutions (CNCS) is partnering with the Our Wild Neighbours (OWN) national initiative to organise an art and wellness festival in October with a wild twist. Called Heart for Nature, this event is organised to celebrate World Animal Day and in conjunction with Singapore Tiger Week.
Other than the two art workshops that will be taking place, members of the public can also browse booths that will be set up by various artists and environmental groups in Singapore. These include booths by the NUS Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum, Singapore Wildcat Action Group, Herpetological Society of Singapore, National Library Board, and many more!
There will be activities suitable for all age groups. Children can get the opportunity to have their faces painted with motifs of our urban wildlife, while teenagers and adults can browse stores selling books and batik stickers inspired by our wild animals.
