Creating Opportunities

I'MABLE COLLECTIVE

The Collective works to nurture and develop a community of artists and makers with disabilities to showcase their talent and strengthen their abilities in artisanal fields. This multi-sectoral platform comprises partners in the people, public and private sectors who, together with persons with disabilities, are motivated to collaborate and contribute towards the development of a viable market for quality merchandise that is created by persons with disabilities, supporting their meaningful vocation.

 

As part of the i’mable initiative, the Collective supports a framework of collaboration, inclusive hiring, sponsorship and social procurement that encourages and supports positive public perception of the special needs community. Its network of social, government, corporate and enterprise partners enables it to harness expertise and resources to bring about strategic opportunities for persons with disabilities, and to enable an inclusive Singapore.

The Collective represents a strong commitment to create more opportunities for them to showcase their capabilities and empower them through collaboration and employment."
