Location: Aliwal Arts Centre, 28 Aliwal St, #03-08, Singapore 199918 (This workshop is conduct at Chowk studio, our venue partner)

Activities include:

Instead of focusing on his powers and heroics, we will take a more unconventional approach and look at the mistakes he made. We will learn how he turned into a new leaf through reflection, courage and perseverance.

- Monkey time! Carefully observe and imitate the traits of primates, to understand the concept of Monkey-Mind: The tendency for humans, in spite of our intelligence, to be impatient, proud and discontented.

- To The West & Back In 60 min: Relive Sun Wukong’s life story, and analyse the wisdom (or lack thereof) of the choices he made, and why he made them.

- Games Of Want: Relate children’s lives today to Sun Wukong’s life through our original game. Explore humans’ need to possess more and more, to prove ourselves to others, and why we get discontented easily. Explain how Sun Wukong struggled with these too, and the hurt he caused others as a result.

- From Trials to Triumph: Understand how Sun Wukong finally turned into a new leaf, after a journey filled with hardship and tests. We will discover the lesson he learnt: That greatness can only be achieved through selflessness and love.

- The name behind the name: Understanding the metaphoric meaning of the name Sun Wukong: 悟 = enlightened, 空 = emptiness.

- Happy First birthday: We will introduce children to the 抓周 tradition, where objects symbolising career choices or personality traits are placed before a child at his or her 1st birthday. We will explore the tension between Choice and Luck. We will learn about the importance of discipline, forming good life habits, and not squandering our talents.
