Ongoing A4G Projects
Edible Arts Club
Edible Arts Club brought together communities with lived experiences of disability and mental health conditions in Singapore and Myanmar through cooking and art-making activities. This was a collaboration between ASEAN Youth Fellow Ms Alecia Neo of Unseen Art Initiatives (Singapore), and art therapists Dr Aung Min and Dr San San Oo of Aung Mental Health Initiative (Myanmar).
Through the activities, the trio facilitated the exchange of insights between participants on navigating the systems of care in their respective countries. The project concluded with a public webinar where the collaborators shared their learnings.
Arts and Disability Forum 2023
The Arts and Disability Forum (ADF) 2023 featured a series of workshops, programmes, and a plenary session, that focused on disability arts access. The speakers and workshop leads comprised arts industry professionals from Australia, Japan, Singapore, and the United Kingdom, who spoke to more than 400 participants at the forum.
Themed “Enabling Aspirations, Diversifying Pathways”, speakers also highlighted the importance of supporting collaborative processes and professional practices facilitated with or led by persons with disabilities.
The ADF 2023 was organised by ART:DIS and the National Arts Council, and supported by the Singapore International Foundation, Singapore Art Museum and Gateway Theatre.
Hear from Our A4G Projects Participants
“Singaporean artists have great concern for society and a deep understanding of what sustainable development means for cities. I will integrate the concept of environmental protection into my future artworks and make further efforts to strengthen my social function as an artist.”
Mr Du Haijun
Participating Artist, Art of Sustainability
“It’s been a pleasure to work with Indonesian and Singaporean friends such as Nita Aartsen, Clement Chow, Ivan Nestoman and the Singapore International Foundation through Songs from the Heart of Kupang. We had worked together in 2016 to introduce arts-based activities into the educational programme of the Roslin Orphanage in Kupang. Our warm-hearted friends took the project a step further by creating a music album to raise funds for the children of Roslin Orphanage. Everyone at Roslin is thankful to be part of this celebration of cross-cultural friendships for good!”
Mr Budi Soehardi
Partner, Roslin Orphanage, The Kupang Project
“Singapore and Malaysia share many cultural similarities that can help inspire cross-cultural exchanges and foster greater ties between the two countries. Art is universal. Increasing collaborative efforts between artists will nurture trust and result in long-lasting relationships.”
