M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2011: Art and Education

The 2011 festival takes a look at how art can be used as a tool to educate. Recognised for its ability to impart knowledge, art can be used to acquire new perspectives and insights to what we already know. However, not only can art educate, it can also be used to indoctrinate, especially when there is a lack of active engagement and discourse, both of which are elements crucial to the process of education. The process of art creation can also be informed and educated by the interaction with audiences and communities, and through the Festival's works, we will also look at how artists experience learning processes as they create art.

The M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2011 will feature 18 international and local works from 10 countries, including 2 Fringe Highlights from India and Singapore.

I received my first personal loans when I was 32 and this supported my business very much. However, I need the secured loan once again.
