The Kupang Project

April 2015 - May 2016 | Kupang, Indonesia

The SIF partnered GenerAsia from Singapore to develop a Creative Education Programme (CEP) for the residents of the Roslin Orphanage in Kupang, Indonesia.

Singaporean artists and art educators also conducted a train-the-trainers programme in Kupang to ensure that the CEP can continue even after the project ends, and to encourage the local trainers to continue developing the CEP.

Through this year-long project (April 2015 to May 2016), the residents of the orphanage learnt various artistic skills such as visual arts, theatre, movement, drums and bells.
