SHAPING TOMORROW

A community art piece

By Superhero Me and Rainbow Centre

Lead Artists: Lee Wan Xiang, Ng Jin Yee, Quek Hong Shin


What does tomorrow look like?


Members of the public are invited to join Rainbow Centre, an organisation that empowers persons with disabilities to thrive, to co-create a 10m long wall mural made of 134 tiles in a new extension wing at its premises at Margaret Drive.


Drawing inspiration from nature, children and adult participants will create unique shapes that represent their identities. Experiment with paper cutouts and express yourself by painting a symbol that represents you on a tile. Viewed in its entirety, these symbols form a language which expresses the shared process of creation.


How the most basic of shapes excite our imagination and complement each other mirrors the power of community. As we progress towards our vision of a more inclusive society, a conscious effort to connect with those different from us will bring a brighter tomorrow full of possibility.
