Aidha organised the final event of the year, the Unspoken Life: Aidha Photography Competition & Exhibition 2017! We held an Opening Night event where we invited the media, representatives from Indonesia and Philippines embassy, corporate partners and Aidha supporters. The following days, on Saturday, 16th and Sunday 17th December, we opened the gallery to the public! We received positive responses from them as they were utterly impressed by the photography skills, creativity and of course, the emotional stories that came with the photographs. Not only that, we had several workshops that were run by the amazing partners and NGOs such as Sing Lit Station who organised the poetry workshop facilitated by local poet, Crispin Rodrigues, Aidha experienced mentors ran the ever-popular money management game and lastly, the photography workshop was organised by Aidha volunteer, Elvin Ling and Lensational, an NGO which empowers women through photography. Also, not forgetting, we had an amazing time with the live sketching idea courtesy of Unstitching Boundaries and our gallery partner, Intersections!
Thank you to all these amazing partners! Also, a BIG thank you to our event sponsors: Mr Ken Cambie, Ms Abela Samson Lourdes, Ms Chan Yvonna, Ms Chua Yi Wen and Ms Chung Li Li! Lastly, thank you to all who attended the event and we hope to continue providing a platform for domestic workers where they can shine as artists, dreamers and changemakers! Special thanks to all the volunteers and the organising committee, Ida Supahat, Elvin Ling, Helen Stutz and Yuen Sin!
