ISTA Festival Penang: Day 2

On the second day of the festival, the participants travelled to Georgetown to explore the local street art. As we walked around the old town, the students carried out various research tasks set by their ensemble leaders.

The afternoon was spent back at school in ensemble groups. It was a frenetic afternoon with lots of ideas being generated and played with: an astounding amount of material was created, some of which will be used in the final sharing that ends the festival.

An important part of the ISTA experience is working as  a full group. In the video below, ISTA artist Matt Baker leads the students as they learn part of a song that has been composed around the theme of the festival.

And here are a few images from Day 2.
