Past Project: 2017

The Kupang Project (2017)

This music album initiative was born out of the 2016 Creative Education Programme that the SIF undertook with Roslin Orphanage, where arts-based activities and skills are part of the educational programme.

Using their new-found skills, residents of the orphanage were able to lend their voices to this album, titled Songs from the Heart of Kupang. The album also features Indonesian jazz musician Nita Aartsen and Singaporean composer Clement Chow, as well as artists from countries such as France and Italy.

The album launch in Jakarta drew audiences from neighbouring Singapore, as well as Germany and Belgium. The fundraising initiative was also a celebration of friendships between Singaporeans and Indonesians who worked together to achieve the common goal of uplifting the residents of Roslin Orphanage.
