Join us at the WeCare Arts Exhibition to hear the stories of seniors from different Voluntary Welfare Organisations (VWOs) and see the artworks created by them. Working with visual artists over a series of 6 to 8 workshop sessions, the seniors produced unique pieces of art that reflect on their life journey. The projects were supported under the WeCare Arts Fund, a collaboration between the National Arts Council and the People’s Association Community Development Councils, to increase arts access for beneficiaries within the social service sector.

The More We Get Together, The Happier We’ll Be
By Mary Bernadette Lee

Interwoven Lives
By Alexandria Neoh
With seniors from Thye Hua Kwan Moral Charities Bedok Radiance Senior Activity Centre. Through the therapeutic process of weaving, and using a wide variety of yarns, fibres and natural materials, the seniors each made an original artwork inspired by personal reflections and self-discovery.

Telling Our Stories
By Objectifs
With seniors from SilverCove-NTUC Health
Through photography, seniors were encouraged to create a meaningful visual story to share with their friends and family that give us a glimpse into their daily lives.

Project Vibe
By Lisan Denise Chng
With seniors and volunteers from Bright Vision Hospital
This project bridged senior patients and community volunteers through a shared experience in mosaic art, fostering socialisation and interaction. Individual mosaic works created by the seniors and volunteers were eventually pieced together to form a collective whole, reinforcing the idea of community.

Reminiscing the Good Old Days
By Joanne Lio
With seniors from St Luke’s ElderCare (Jurong East)
Intended as a multi-sensory experience, seniors worked on projects that integrated their personal stories in the exploration of different forms of art expression.
