Youths: Reloaded! is an initiative started in conjunction with Citibank-YMCA Youth For Causes (YFC) to raise funds and awareness for The Children’s Wishing Well.

It is, believe it or not, a three-member team of 17-year-olds (Calyn, Carina and Jun Peng) who are in their final year at St Joseph’s Institution Senior School.

These younglings are passionate in serving the community, especially in helping disadvantaged children in Singapore.

The Children’s Wishing Well is a service charity that is dedicated to serving young children, with a focus on relieving poverty and the advancement of education.

The charity provides food, financial assistance, counselling and educational support, as well as improving living conditions. They aim to help youths in transition by recognising their uniqueness and fostering self-worth.

A few of TCWW’s intiatives include:

  • The Children’s Wishing Well, an online equivalent of a magic wishing well that allows disadvantaged students to express their real needs and allows them the opportunity to fulfill them.
  • Lunch Box Fund, a programme that provides free lunches for underprivileged primary and secondary students daily.

The UN[SEEN] is now at The Garden Slug!

A son. A daughter. A mother. A friend. An employee. A boss. A colleague.

The UN[SEEN] is a roving photo exhibit that depicts the lives of transgender people in Singapore, and provides a glimpse into their extraordinary journey to lead ordinary lives.

Their stories are diverse and these people congregate from all walks of life to be featured in this project.

Some of them lead muted, sub-par lives to avoid discrimination and exist alongside mainstream society, not quite blending in, yet not truly standing out either, for their overt gender ambiguity. Others choose to embrace their unique identity openly.

There will always be those who do not conform to societal norms of having a gender binary system, and these people will forever live in the shadows cast by prejudice and unfair stereotypes, but remember:

underneath those layers marred by misunderstanding is a family member, friend, or even a co-worker with their own lives to lead, just like you and me.

~~~

UN[SEEN] is brought to you by Break The Binary as a roving exhibition in Singapore.

After its much-touted soft launch success at Artistry, we are very much humbled and honoured to be the chosen home of UN[SEEN] for the next couple of months.
