"Re-connecting the Pandemic World" Art Contest

Themes
The Covid pandemic has not just separated each of us physically but socially despite the virtual connections maintained through social media. As organisations advocating arts and mental health, we believe that ‘arts’ have the immense power to ‘draw’ people together, especially in difficult times like this. The theme “Re-connecting the Pandemic World” is set to prompt reflections on how the making of art could restore the connections that are fractured and foster new relationships during the pandemic. We hope you will enjoy and benefit from this journey of exploring the power of arts, forming connections from the production process and inspiring others to make connections during the pandemic.
