Art What!: National Gallery Singapore Offers Free Entry For Healthcare Workers, Rallies Local Artists To Encourage Them
With the ongoing battle against Covid-19, we’ve seen theatre groups rallying together in an effort to get through the virus. Now, the National Gallery Singapore is reaching out in a show of support to healthcare workers with #SGArtforHCW, utilising the power of art to unite the community and encourage them to stay strong.
Created in collaboration with the Singapore Medical Association (SMA), the public
campaign is rallying local artists and collaborators to contribute words and drawings of encouragement to boost the morale of our frontline healthcare professionals, not just for nurses and doctors, but also cleaners, porters, shuttle bus drivers, admin personnel, and radiographers who are also working to keep the virus at bay.
The Gallery will be obtaining public submissions through the hashtag #SgartforHCW on Facebook and Instagram. Selected artworks will be displayed at hospitals’ public spaces as a form of encouragement to healthcare workers. In addition, the Gallery is also offering free entry for them and their plus ones to enjoy the ongoing exhibitions starting
from 28th February, as long as they show their work passes at the ticketing counters.
Send words and drawings of encouragement to frontline healthcare workers by tagging them with #SgartforHCW and #nationalgallerysingapore on Instagram or Facebook, for a chance to have your artwork produced as a poster display in hospitals and public spaces.
