The artistic talents of persons with disabilities are featured again in the National Day Parade (NDP) 2021. This marks our second collaboration with NDP.

 

72 artists with disabilities from 26 social service agencies and special education schools submitted artworks; of which 21 artworks are featured on the foldable fans and stickers in the NDP pack. Centred on the theme ‘Together Our Singapore Spirit’, the artworks illustrate the unique perspective of each artist with disability and what they see as the ‘Singapore Spirit’.

The collaboration with NDP organisers is part of SG Enable’s i’mable public education initiative to encourage Singapore to take positive action for persons with disabilities and embrace them as integral members of society. Together, we hope to showcase persons with disabilities’ gift of art and love for Singapore.
