The Community heARTs Exhibition organised by the Care Network will be held on 22nd and 23rd September 2007 (9.30am – 6pm) at The Arts House. Admission is free. This exhibition champions the cause of unlocking the second prison, which is in line with the Yellow Ribbon message. At the same time, this event acts as a platform for inmates (& ex-offenders) to showcase their artistic talents.
I read from the event's website that the art pieces will be available for adoption. All proceeds from the adoption will be donated to the beneficiary - Very Special Arts Singapore (VSA). Therefore, your support will help inmates & ex-offenders make a contribution back to the society.
Interestingly, the exhibition will showcase the '5 Phases Of Rehabilitation'. As such, the art works on display are the artistic expressions of the struggles, hopes and dreams of the inmates (& ex-offenders) as they aspire to take on a new lease of life.
This is one meaningful exhibition to support if you are free this weekend.
