About the Programme :

Humans can process visuals 60,000 times faster than text. In the digital age we live in, a new visual language has emerged. Using works featured in the President*s Design Award (P*DA) 2020 Design of the Year project, EYEYAH!, this session will explore how images can nurture observation and curiosity to learn more about the world around us and make complex, sensitive topics fun and approachable.

EYEYAH! is an educational platform that uses engaging learning materials and events to help children understand important social, environmental and economic topics. Through its magazines, toolkits, interactive workshops, exhibitions and apps, EYEYAH! nurtures children’s creative and problem-solving skills in a playful and original way.

The interactive session will include an exclusive first look at new content from the upcoming issue of EYEYAH!.

This programme is presented in conjunction with the P*DA 2020 Exhibition at library@orchard from 2 to 28 November 2021.
