The Red Pencil (Singapore) celebrated the official opening of its first Creative Arts Therapy Center in Singapore on June 9, 2022. The event was chaired by Mr. Melvin Yong, Member of Parliament of Singapore.
A program of relaxing and fun activities such as art, music, dance and movement therapy workshops greeted participants when the center opened.
The launch of our center in the heart of Singapore (Redhill) is a momentous occasion to mark our 10-year journey of rolling out creative arts therapy programs for Singapore’s most vulnerable community in hospitals, schools, centers of adoption and the elderly, and in prisons.
About The Red Pencil (Singapore)
The Red Pencil (Singapore) is one of the entities of “The Red Pencil Humanitarian Mission”, along with The Red Pencil (Europe), The Red Pencil (International) and The Red Pencil (Middle-East). The Red Pencil Humanitarian Mission has its governance office in Monaco, which brings together the activities of all The Red Pencil entities.
The Red Pencil (Singapore) is a public institution and registered charity, founded in Singapore in 2011, with a mission to bring the benefits of creative arts therapy (drawing, music, movement and dance) to underprivileged children, adults and families who have gone through life-altering and traumatic circumstances such as long-term illnesses, violence and abuse, for which they may have no words. The creative arts therapy process enables our participants to express the unspeakable, to experience liberation and relief through non-verbal expression, to find new inner and outer resources, to gain self-confidence and to feel empowered to move towards a better and happier life, for oneself and for others. At Red Pencil, we are dedicated to the resilience and long-term recovery of the most vulnerable from all walks of life, to enable them to grow into healthy, happy people to build the world of tomorrow.
