The children will engage in therapeutic activities and gain empowerment through artistic expression under the guidance of Singapore’s flourishing art community. The children will not only interact with art therapists and learn about ceramic art, photography, music and dance, lessons of which are to be helmed by various art organizations, including STPI and Deliarts Ceramic Studios etc. held in collaboration with LASALLE College of the Arts, but bond through cross-cultural exchange with volunteers from Red Cross Youth and St Joseph’s Institution International.

Current sponsors of the programme include the Singapore Red Cross, EMRO and Kult Kafe, at which the welcome reception will take place. The programme has also been made possible through funds raised at benefit art auctions in New York by TITD’s founder, renowned NY-based artist Noritoshi Hirakawa.

Mr. Hirakawa illuminates his cause: “TODAY IS THE DAY is proposing a process of identifying the fundamental problems in this world and finding solutions for them. Searching for a cure is an important way of encouraging transformation to happen. Creation is always here; we will know its effects through our inspirations. I believe it is extremely important for us to give humanitarian aid to the children in Fukushima; I think it reminds us what makes life worth living in this world. We very much appreciate your attending our Welcome Reception! ”
