Day 1: Orientation around LASALLE’s McNally campus
20th July 2017 marks the start of Tropical Lab’s 11th season! 26 guests gathered from various cultures to explore this year’s theme- Citation: Déjà Vu.
The morning on the first day of Tropical Lab started with breakfast alongside the collection of goodie bags. After being fuelled, we head into the lecture theatre to receive a welcome from our Vice President (Academic) and Provost Venka Purushothaman and a preparation talk for an exciting trip by Steven Lim.
Afterwards we proceeded with a tour around the campus by no other than the Tropical King himself- Mr. Milenko Prvacki. Guests had a look around at LASALLE’s campus facilities that they can use apart from their studio spaces.

In the afternoon, we had an amazing seminar with five distinguished guest speakers- Bala Starr, Jesse Jones, David Thomas, Shubigi Rao and Tony Godfrey. The guest speakers discussed their works in regards to this year’s Tropical Lab theme- Déjà Vu to kickstart our guests’ creative juices!
The day comes to an end and special thanks to all guests speakers who chaired the seminar!
Stay tuned for more updates!
