#MadeInSingapore | Empowering Communities Affected by HIV through Arts

December 01, 2018

Empowering Communities through Arts Education Art Faces

Singapore International Foundation continued the partnership with former volunteer Dr Esther Joosa to conduct a train-the-trainers workshop entitled Empowering Communities through Arts Education in Tamil Nadu, India. Some 25 social workers from four NGOs learnt how to incorporate the arts within their care-giving practices for communities affected by HIV.

The eight-day workshop commenced with an overview of arts-based initiatives designed for community development for 25 caregivers, and was followed by one-on-one mentorship sessions with Dr Joosa. She and the 25 caregivers also conducted various arts activities, such as self-portraiture sessions, with more than 100 local participants from HIV-affected communities in Tamil Nadu.
