The SIF partnered Alecia Neo from Singapore and Toccata Studio and theatrethreesixty from Malaysia, as well as the Malaysian community to hold Unseen: Shift Lab KL, a series of arts-based workshops with the visually-impaired community in December 2015. Singaporean and Malaysian artists taught visually-impaired youth from Dialogue in the Dark Malaysia (DIDMY) various art skills, including photography, sound and movement, storytelling, and sound visualisation, as a means to uplift their lives and improve their self-expression. These workshops were part of Titian Budaya, a showcase of creative talents of Singapore and Malaysia and the artistic vitality of their collaborations across a wide spectrum of art forms over three months.

The collaborative process was documented and presented as part of Unseen: Constellations, an exhibition at Objectifs from 18 March to 17 April 2016.
