The SIF’s annual Artists for a Better World (ABW) programme aims to foster networks and build capacity for the Arts for Good ecosystem in the region. The inaugural edition of ABW focused on how we can harness the arts and culture to create impact for persons with disabilities. 29 international participants from 13 countries, including India, Indonesia, Malaysia and as far as Greece, Cyprus and Palestine took part in webinars and study visits to Singapore and Malaysia across a 5-month period from October 2017 to February 2018 to exchange insights and connect with partners as well as the local communities.
Partnerships and connections are at the heart of what we do, and we are delighted that on the final study visit in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, from 6 – 9 February 2018, our neighbours warmly welcomed us and we shared meaningful ways to shape an inclusive society through the arts.
This programme is part of the SIF’s Arts for Good initiative, which seeks to promote awareness of social issues, share best practices and enable action for positive social impact through the arts.
