Arts for Good
Songs from the Heart of Kupang
January - October 2017 | Jakarta, Indonesia
Indonesian and Singaporean artists came together to do good through The Kupang Project , a year-long collaboration in 2016 under the Singapore International Foundation’s (SIF) Arts for Good initiative. The artists collaborated to introduce arts-based activities into the educational programme of the Roslin Orphanage in Kupang, Indonesia. They also conducted Train-the-Trainers workshops, to enable caregivers at the Roslin Orphanage to continue the programme for future residents.
In 2017, two artists – Indonesian jazz musician Nita Aartsen and Singaporean composer Clement Chow – have taken the project a step further to create a music album ‘Songs from the Heart of Kupang’. The duo wrote and composed music inspired by their interactions with the residents of the Roslin Orphanage, and produced a music album featuring the voices of residents of the Roslin Orphanage with contributions from international musicians.
Join us to celebrate friendships and artistic collaborations for good at the launch of the music album, ‘Songs from the Heart of Kupang’ on Saturday, 14 October 2017. The launch will be held at Paviliun 28 in Jakarta, Indonesia and all proceeds from the sale of the music album will go to the Roslin Orphanage.
