What counts as bullying? Can seemingly innocuous words and actions be hurtful to the people around us? What can we do when we witness bullying, and how can we all contribute to a bully-free culture? To answer these questions and raise awareness on this issue, the National Heritage Board (NHB), together with the Singapore Children’s Society, presents Scribble Town, an interactive exhibition for children aged between 9 and 12.
On display at the Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall (SYSNMH) from now till 31 January 2021, the exhibition features 80 comic frames across three different stations – The Flying Mariner, Darkwoods Forest, and Bleak Mountain. Visitors will follow the three characters on their journey as they attempt to fix the Colourwheel to save Scribble Town. Observe the interactions among Scribblies Sam, Dan and Lydia to gain a better understanding of the different types of bullying, how and why bullying occurs, and the corresponding impact on the parties involved.
Will the three Scribblies work together and succeed, or will they put the mission at risk by picking on each other and fighting amongst themselves? What would you do if you were in their shoes? Visit the exhibition to find out!
The Scribble Town exhibition is available in English only.
