On 30 March 2019 (Saturday), the workshop aims to attract 40 or more participants to help create up to 200 art loops per session. The workshops are organised by Tampines GRC Community Arts and Culture Clubs (CACCs) under the People’s Association’s PAssionArts and the SAMH Creative MINDSET Hub, a unit of the Singapore Association for Mental Health.

Community Art Loops was conceptualised as a community plan to raise awareness about the importance of social inclusiveness for the mental well-being of the people in the community. It serves as a symbolic beginning to how SAMH Creative Services MINDSET Hub, which opened at Our Tampines Hub in late 2018, wants to introduce the arts, in support of the mental well-being of the community and to create an environment of social inclusiveness.

Agnes Poon, Chairperson of Tampines Changkat CACC, said: “PAssionArts is focussed on making arts and culture more accessible to the people by bringing it right to the heart of every constituency in Singapore. The Art Loops installation represent community partnership, which is critical to one’s journey towards mental wellness as it helps to foster stronger bonds and further enhances support within the community. By collaborating closely with SAMH in this programme, we hope to communicate that PAssionArts initiatives truly embody the important principle of all-inclusiveness.”
