I-Opener by Playeum
Now until 26 Apr 2020
Tues - Sun: 10am - 6pm (Closed on Mondays)
$22 per child (1-12) | Accompanying adult: Free | Additional accompanying adult: $10

I-Opener features the aesthetic and sensory play-worlds co-created by individuals with various disabilities, and also without. It invites kids aged 1 to 12 to explore their senses through play and the arts.

As we all know, the senses - sight, touch and hearing all play an important role in a child’s discovery of the world as well as their social-emotional development. But more than that, this exhibition DIFFERS from Playeum's previous exhibitions in that instead of just introducing the art of play to kids, it allows kids to step into the world of those with special needs and experience the way how they interact, play and sense the world around them.
