Personally Speaking is a visual arts project that explores the stories of caregiving for people with special needs, mental illness, and the elderly.
The exhibition is a showcase of works by 8 Singapore artists, who were commissioned by the Lien Foundation to create artworks inspired by the stories of caregivers for people with mental illness, special needs, and the elderly. Most of the artists either drew on personal stories of caregiving, or co-created works with caregivers to tell their stories. The purpose of the show is to raise awareness of the challenges and rewards of caregiving, and hopefully inspire some kind of action to better support the caregivers in our midst.
This exhibit will feature works by Alecia Neo, ampulets, Deanna Ng, Gwee Li Sui, Joseph Chiang, Kray Chen, Mary Bernadette Lee and Sun Koh.
