Social Creatives is an Institute of Public Character that operate as a Social Enterprise. We aim to make Singapore and society colourful by bridging art to help with the tangible and intangible walls that divide us from being our best to each other, society and ourselves.
Social Creatives started in 2008 through the learning of a pilot project initiate in 2006 that bridges art to our heart level by painting dustbins along Orchard Road. To date, Social Creatives has connected over 50 non-profits, over 30,000 participants and 700 artworks.
However, the tears of joy and social impact motivates us more. This include the story of Mr Chandra Kumar who was formerly a drug addict and was diagnosed with diabetes resulting in the amputation of his legs. Despite all this, he would be watching us from a distance with a smile whenever we were at our Void Deck Gallery. He explained that he stayed alone in his one-room flat but the art gallery gave him comfort and hope
We do community art and murals to impact our heARTs and grow a colourful eARTh. We paint in different places from public domain and in social service organisations. As a creative enterprise, we aim to revolutionize the sector by igniting creative solutions to help societal gaps.
