If you knew your craft could touch the life of someone in need, what would you create?
Culture Plus is an initiative to nurture the artistic talents of vulnerable adults and develop their self-worth so that they have the opportunity to fulfill their aspirations to contribute meaningfully to society. Through a creative exchange of ideas in a participatory art platform developed by talented vulnerable adults, forgotten communities are brought together for a powerful shared experience, thus integrating societies and enriching lives.
Founded on a belief in the healing power of the arts to enrich the lives of forgotten communities, Culture Plus: A Message From Outside explores the creative journey of five inmate-artists from Visual Arts Hub at Changi Prison Complex and nine elderly residents from United Medicare Centre (Queensway) as they draw paintings for one another.
