Science Café @Temasek Shophouse

The Power of Art: Exploring Mental Health Through Comics

Graphic medicine is an inclusive and empowering art form that welcomes everyone, regardless of their artistic abilities. When it comes to sharing stories about illness, it can be challenging to find the right words. That's where images come in, helping us convey what words alone cannot express.

In our workshop, we guide you through the process of creating a comic strip. Don't worry if you've never drawn before! Prior experience is not necessary.

Science Centre Singapore is collaborating with Temasek Shophouse to bring you this workshop as part of our Science Café series, in conjunction with Temasek Shophouse’s 4th Anniversary. 

Get your tickets now as limited seats are available!
Please note that the venue for this Café event is Temasek Shophouse. 
For ages 18 and above only. Programme is not suitable for children. 

Note: This is not a therapeutic session. This is a public engagement programme and is not part of any research project. No data collection will take place.
