Richard Tan

Richard Tan is presently, the Artistic Director of GenerAsia Limited, a non-profit theatre arts company, dedicated to grooming local talents and promoting Asian works for the younger generation. This company represent Richard’s dream to give back to the community, to collaborate & create new works by bringing our local performing art forms to the heartlands. Over these few years, Richard has cut down on his creative consultancy work to spent more time with his elderly family members -his aging mother and his father's siblings.

Being a closely knit family of seniors, it has become more challenging for his elderly folks to meet and spend quality time with each other during these times.
