Inktober Global Art Celebration Comes To the Fire Station
What better way to let your creativity flow than to collaborate with friends and professional artists and be part of a unique creative experience. 

Grab your pens & pals and come over to the Fire Station to doodle your way to a new creative breakthrough!

What is Happening:
  • Catch our professional artist at work and learn the technical skills to ink from her.
  • You will also get a chance to collaborate with us in making a one of a kind art work as we begin the global art challenge #Inktober here at Fire Station!
Objective for FireStation 

We are aiming at creating at least four panels of ink based work that will be loosely directed by an artist who would initiate the drawing which will then be made available for the public to add on to. 

After the project is finished these sheets will be taken back by the artist who will consolidate them and unify them to make one large mural.

About our Inktober Artist 

Mariam Ahmed is a diaspora artist and art educationist who has delivered workshops and exhibited her personal art work in Singapore, Pakistan and the USA among other places. 

Her personal work grows out of the urban culture she is surrounded by and pen and ink happen to be one of her preferred medium. Catch Mariam at the Fire Station every Monday and Wednesday morning 10 am -11 am as she demonstrates and shares her inking techniques.

You can learn more about her and see more of her work at
