What a fantastic ride it’s been at this year’s annual Unspoken Life photography exhibition! We wrapped up our 7th edition of Unspoken Life over the weekend of 9th and 10th September at a cosy gallery in the heart of Tiong Bahru.



Volunteers viewing photographs of the ‘Soulful Moments’ category.

This vibrant showcase featured the incredible talent of migrant domestic workers (MDWs) through the power of visual storytelling – delving beneath labels and unfurling the many selves of MDWs to convey profound narratives in ways words may not be able to.

A heartfelt congratulations to our 5 winners: “Soulful Moments” category – Agnes Tono, “Hidden Treasures” category – Jaena Donor, “Empowering Journeys” category – Eli Nur Fadilah, “People’s Choice” category – Alma Maderse and Overall Winner – Jean E. Ragual.

Special shoutout to our judge, Chin Hock Tan (HoldingHands Studio), for presenting the awards to our finalists and winners, and to Aidha CEO Jacqueline Loh and Aidha Communications Manager Amirah Ali for the uplifting speeches to empower and inspire us all!

Unspoken Life not only gives migrant domestic workers a chance to exercise their artistic expression, but also allows the wider community to appreciate their talent, stories and voices outside of their labels as domestic workers. It encourages us to see the world through a different lens, fostering a deeper understanding of our wonderfully diverse society.

As we say goodbye to this year’s exhibition, we carry the incredible images and stories in our hearts. We can’t wait for the next  instalment to keep celebrating the remarkable talent of migrant domestic workers through the art of photography!

Check out the stunning works by our finalists here. The photographs are available for sale, and all proceeds will go towards Aidha; to further empower and uplift migrant domestic workers in Singapore.
