Our Tampines Hub is the heart of Tak Kenal Maka Tak Cinta @ Kampung Tempinis (Tampines GRC PAssionArts Festival 2017), celebrating all things Malay! Extending from outdoors, greetings by huge two metre large Wau (Malay kites) and tree trunks carved and painted into artistic totem poles co-created by residents, welcome you to our village.
Have a go at our batik corner and bring home your uniquely painted paper umbrella. You can also visit our blacksmith to make your very own Keris (Malay Dagger). Be immersed in Malay traditional performances like Dikir Barat, Angklung and Wayang Kulit presented in a refreshing 'large screen' format. These programmes showcase the arts of the many ethnic origins within Malay culture.
Going out indoors, a curated experience that extend the experience of outdoors and the indoor traditional concert, in the style of a contemporary variety show will enchant you. Then it is time for you to stretch out and loosen up, join the biggest social event involving the whole kampung, the mass Joget Lambak.
