Citizen Ambassador: The Arts Educator
Meet Richard Tan, the Arts Educator.
Richard, who was Artistic Director (Dance) with the SAF Music & Drama Company, has groomed countless professional dancers, celebrities, and stage artistes in the local performing arts community over the past 35 years.
Determined to give back to community, Richard has gathered a team of creative educators to train and connect with children from Roslin Orphanage in Kupang, Indonesia, with the support of the Singapore International Foundation’s Arts for Good initiative. With their creative talents unleashed, these children will soon perform in Jakarta to raise funds for their orphanage—showcasing the beauty of using arts for social good.
