Our House Downstairs
"Don't buy the house; buy the neighbourhood."
- Russian Proverb
Friends and families are important but literally, the nearest and dearest can very well be our neighbourhood community. While adapting to the ever-changing 'norms' can be daunting, it will be great if emotion and social support is just a stone's throw away for all of us. There are many ways to cope and we believe that art is one of the best ways to shape our mental wellness and being.
Our House Downstairs (OHD) opens a slew of possibilities and realms of imagination when we use arts and culture to bring everyone together.
Our first OHD stop happens at Pek Kio, whereby senior residents under the Moulmein-Cairnhill (MoCa) division of Tanjong Pagar GRC have been gathering for art jamming sessions every Thursday.
