[MAD] Collective presents Toa Payoh’s Odyssey: Uniting Through Recycling.
In line with the theme of STRENGTH, Toa Payoh’s Odyssey: Uniting Through Recycling is introducing a 3-part recycling journey that is intended as a combination of family-friendly activities that would connect different age groups in exploring art-making together. The Map and The Workshop is an accumulation of eco-friendly resolutions and decorated bottles by the community that will be showcased at SAFRA Toa Payoh from January to February 2022.
The Workshop is a family-friendly activity where all ages are welcomed to decorate as many plastic bottles with the theme Uniting Through Recycling. Residents are encouraged to recycle their own 1.5l bottles and illustrate the strength on how we come together as a community to save the environment. With all the bottles coming together to form a dome structure, one could only imagine how colourful it will be reflecting the sunlight once it is assembled in SAFRA Toa Payoh’s Fish Tank on the 21st of January 2022!
Residents are encouraged to submit an eco-friendly pledge to reduce single-use plastics usage. These post-it notes will be pasted onto The Map which is a blueprint of Toa Payoh. This map will serve as a symbol of strength that merges our collective efforts and is necessary in uniting the community to address the important issue of the environmental crisis that the world is facing.
As part of the Arts@SAFRA Community Arts Residency with SAFRA Toa Payoh and the National Arts Council, [MAD] collaborates with residents of Toa Payoh to encourage the different layers of the community to embark on a possible long term upcycling journey via workshops and art installations.
