“More Than Words (2015)” Tea Session

30 Apr 2015

To kick start the foundation’s More Than Words journey this year, the Tan Chin Tuan Foundation invited staff from TCTF-supported charities for a get-together to share more about our More Than Words 2015 programmes over tea.

At the tea session, TCTF introduced the exciting activities we have lined up for our beneficiary charities this year through our collaborations with our arts partners. A few of our partner art practitioners, ACTs of Life, Singapore Creations Etc., Singapore Repertory Theatre and The Little Arts Academy shared more about the various workshops that they will be conducting to train staff/beneficiaries of the charities, under our More Than Words programme. TCTF also garnered input on how we can better tailor the different training initiatives to meet the needs of the charities.

More Than Words is a signature programme of TCTF, in line with its focus on education and community development. The programme seeks to provide opportunities for less privileged children to learn creatively through the arts and culture. This year’s programme cycle will run from May onwards, and will include a suite of genres including speech and drama, theatre, storytelling, hip-hop dance and singing, just to name a few.
