Event description

Description

If you knew your craft could touch the life of someone in need, what would you create?

Founded on a belief in the healing power of the arts to enrich the lives of forgotten communities, Culture Plus: A Message From Outside explores the creative journey of five inmate-artists from Visual Arts Hub at Changi Prison Complex and nine elderly residents from United Medicare Centre (Queensway) as they draw paintings for one another.

Over the course of four art sessions facilitated by master artist Sun Yu-Li, across the space of two months, each inmate was paired with two residents as they embarked on the art-making process together. The ‘paint-pals’ conversed with each other virtually through the exchange of visual journals, each sharing their thoughts and reflections on the things and people they hold dear. This exchange of ideas then served as inspiration for the artwork they created for each other.

Culture Plus also introduced Augmented Reality (AR) technology to five other inmate-artists, which further enabled them to bring the stories of the paint-pals to life through animation.

This initiative by Global Culture Alliance hopes to leverage on the transformative power of the arts to bring peoples together for powerful shared experiences, to enrich lives of communities we often forget​​ and to create artistic platforms for the public to reconnect with these communities.

Culture Plus: A Message From Outside is held in partnership with the Yellow Ribbon Project and United Medicare Centre (Queensway) and supported by Our Singapore Fund.

Admission is free by appointment. Please email us at enquiries@gcaworld.sg to advise us on the date/time you'd like to visit.
