ONE Room Flats- Elavating emotional poverty
About Campaignends 18 Aug 2016, 12 AM
On top of repainting their walls with colours, we are hoping to get our hands dirty to paint murals and canvas artworks in One Room Flats reflecting stories of the lower income and hence, allowing them to live life with a smile in their home and country. Once we met a young child wearing a school uniform, despite it being a weekend. Curious, he asked why. The child replied that there was nothing else to wear. Another story is of a resident requesting for five birds to be painted onto the wall. He shared it was to signify his children, who had already left the nest and disowned him
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
