Creating experiential programs is a unique characteristic of how Gracie Teo communicates messages, with favored themes centering on culture, creativity, and community. Working as coordinator, programmer, and producer, her projects have included a music festival, a youth design festival, and a conference for youth social workers. Gracie produced the Yesterday Mobile Karaoke for the Singapore Arts Festival in 2011 and introduced live mystery games from Japan when the first Real Escape Game was staged in Singapore in 2012. She was also involved in production work for the award-winning film Untouchable: Children of God (Humanitarian Film Award, New Port Film Festival 2014). In 2015, Gracie was the Project Manager for the Singapore Snaps project, which was launched at the Past Forward exhibition (part of the country’s celebrations of 50 years of nationhood, and curated by the Singapore Memory Project). Gracie recently completed an action-learning lab, the Greenhouse Lab, which aims to create a community of practice for art practitioners, social workers, and researchers in the area of community development. In her free time, Gracie loves traveling, meeting people who are passionate about life, watching documentaries, and dancing the lindy hop!
