Where is Dan? Is written by Lydia Lok and tells the Singapore story of independence, self-reliance and diversity.  Through the eyes of unique local food ingredients, this story aims to raise awareness on how we managed to foster a sense of belonging to this young nation despite limited resources, within a short span of time. A great fully-illustrated picture storybook for children. Join us for this workshop as we delve into the characters of the book, the inspiration behind them and how we can learn from their story.
 
Lydia Lok believes in using stories to talk about social issues and personal reflections. In the day, she is passionately involved with start-ups and social enterprises; while at night she tries to be a productive writer. In her former life, she was a government servant who dealt with policies regarding social issues and businesses. She lives in Singapore with a fluffy Sheltie named Lemon and a non-fluffy husband named Shuohan.
 
This programme is limited to 20 participants only and registration is required.
This programme is suitable for children aged 7 – 9 years old.
