Our Campaign Storyends 31 Aug 2016, 11:59 PM
We aim to make a difference to 2000 children and youth.
With every $200 you are able to touch the life of one beneficiary with music and change the lives of others through the arts.
200 for 2000 is an annual community outreach and fundraising programme by The Rice Company Limited to enable children to experience Music and Arts as part of their development and growth.
A donation of $200 will allow one beneficiary to enjoy a music concert and support the Business Time Budding Artists Fund in reaching out to children from disadvantaged families to discover their artistic talents.
We are hoping to bring 1,000 beneficiaries to attend the following concerts:
The ICON Series Dick Lee Singapop Concert (19 Aug 2016): a one-night only mega concert by Cultural medallion recipient Dick Lee to inspire the next generation of musical talents through his life journey in music.
Sentosa- Singapore Rhapsodies Concert (27 August 2016): This brand new annual concert is a treat for music lovers and supporters of local musicians to catch Singapore's fastest-rising music stars!
The Business Times Budding Artists Fund (BT BAF) is managed by The RICE Company Limited (TRCL), a non-profit organisation that harvests the potential of the arts and culture for the development of human lives and connecting communities locally and around the world.
Initiated in 2004 and adopted by The Business Times in 2005, BT BAF originated from a conviction that no child with strong interest and potential in the arts should be denied the opportunity to develop his or her talents due to a lack of financial resources. Since 2005, BT BAF has reached out to more than 15,000 children between the ages of 6 and 19 years through a variety of arts education programmes.
Beneficiaries are trained primarily at The Little Arts Academy (LAA) and 10 Square @ Orchard Central. The multidisciplinary curriculum covers Music, Dance, Theatre and Visual Arts and a key feature of the programming is the opportunity for beneficiaries to stage public performances.
