Educators' Workshop
Representing Cityscapes in Film

This workshop will take a look at the various dimensions of a city such as - its quirks, forgotten spaces and people, its urbanisation and the environment, socialspatial relations, architecture, and transportation. Through the use of film clips, educators will gain insight on how Singapore is represented as a city and discuss the issues related to such representations. Comparisons to other Southeast Asian and international cities will also be made.
