In a possibly world-first artistic production between the legal and art sectors, the CJC will be collaborating with Mr Jack Tan, a London based Singaporean artist, the National Arts Council and talents within the justice system to produce the Voices from the Courts. This artwork will comprise of a set of graphic scores inspired by Jack's period of research on voices heard within the courts in an artistic form. It will be performed by the world renowned ACJC alumni choir during the opening week of the 5th International Biennale of Contemporary Art on 29 Oct 2016.Its purpose is to crowdfund to raise funds and awareness of its works.
The Community Justice Centre (CJC) was launched in March 2013 by the Honourable the Chief Justice Sundaresh Menon, to help unrepresented litigants who may be daunted by the prospect of handling a case on their own. CJC offers these litigants assistance with the courts processes and procedures, so that that they may better navigate the court system, thereby enhancing access to justice, irrespective of background or social status.CJC also assists litigants who face financial difficulties or underlying emotional or psychological distress. By working in partnership with social agencies, lawyers and volunteers, CJC provides a continuum of tiered programmes, catering to the individual needs of these litigants.
