The facades of the Merlion and ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay will have light projections cast onto them from Dec 29 to 31, 2019.

This is part of the Build a Dream initiative by Marina Bay Singapore Countdown 2020, in partnership with the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NPVC).

The light projections that will be on the facade of the Merlion are adapted from drawings and pastel artwork co-created by the elderly patients and volunteers of Yishun Community Hospital. The montage also reflects the volunteers’ hopes for the elderly to age actively.

Visitors will be able to catch the nightly light projections on the Merlion between 8 pm and 10:30 pm on Dec. 29 and 30, and between 8 pm and 11:30 pm on Dec. 31.

Meanwhile, across the bay at the ArtScience Museum, the light projections are created from illustrations by budding artists from the Dyslexia Association of Singapore.

These illustrations share the perspective of how people with dyslexia relate to the world, and their hopes for Singapore to become an even more inclusive society, with considerations for people with different learning needs.

Visitors will be able to catch the nightly light projections at the ArtScience Museum between 8:15 pm and 10:30 pm on Dec. 29 to 30, and between 8:15 pm and 10:15 pm on Dec. 31.
