Dis/Connect: Digital Detox
Welcome to Dis/Connect: Digital Detox! A special space programmed as an antidote to the high dependency we have in staying connected via digital modes, rather than humane modes. These programmes are highly interactive and encourage conversation, the sharing of spoken stories and creation of visual stories. In an era of distractions and devices as well as tremendous dependency on screen-time, we hope to disrupt this habit by creating an exciting, inviting and non-threatening environment. This space aims to foster verbal communication, eye contact, listening skills and self-expression. The four programmes have been carefully curated to complement each other.
