The TenSquare landmark and initiative aims to inspire, motivate, and empower young people in the areas of social impact innovation and creativity. It brings meaningful projects to the community by promoting the arts in collaboration with like-minded stakeholders from the private, public, and non-profit sectors. LED screens have increased in public spaces worldwide and are mostly used only for commercial advertising. However, when these large-scale screens are used to show media art in public, they can transform the experience of space and evoke sensorial and emotional impressions in passers-by, as well as allowing artists to be "agents of change”.
Since it was founded in 2005, NTU's School of Art, Design and Media (ADM) has grown into one of Singapore's most innovative tertiary education institutions. The School of Art, Design and Media (ADM) seeks to play a weighty role in transforming the island state into a global media city. Its inter-disciplinary courses are designed to mould creative individuals into outstanding artists, designers, animators, new media performers and even business leaders. In essence, we liberate imaginative minds to unleash breakthrough design as an integral part of life. https://www.ntu.edu.sg/adm
