Information about the talk and registration details will be available soon.

Personally Speaking is a visual arts project that explores the stories of caregiving for people with special needs, mental illness, and the elderly. Eight Singapore artists have been inspired by the personal joys and challenges of caregivers, shared with them by people of all walks of life, including parents, children, teachers, social workers and healthcare professionals.

While each account is unique, they collectively reflect the anxieties and difficulties faced by many caregivers. Many of them harbor simple hopes and dreams of a better life for their wards. Through this exhibition, we hope to create a space that allows everyone to reflect on their own caregiving journey, and consider the kind of care that we would like our loved ones and ourselves to receive.
