Unseen:Constellations

Two-year long collaborative art project, Unseen: Constellations, provides a platform for seven students from Ahmad Ibrahim Secondary School who live with visual-impairment and blindness to explore their dreams through a creative process led by artist, Alecia Neo and a team of dedicated mentors.

THE WORKSHOP TO MENTORSHIP PROGRAMME
Our students participated in an eight day creative workshop, role-playing their future selves and aspirations. They were then paired with professionals from a diverse range of expertise, based on the students’ dream vocations.

THE MENTORSHIP PROGRAMME
In many ways, our students, artist and collaborators are collectively dreaming our world into being. By creating their very own stories, a myriad of projects have sprouted and grown over time.

Each group meets regularly about two to three times a month, and sometimes more, in preparation of events or activities related to their projects.

Amongst the works, there are music videos about friendship and discrimination, original music about kinship, symphonic band composition, a short film about a visually-impaired recruit’s journey in the army, coming-of-age experimental films about love, danger and freedom, an audio story book featuring a blind criminal investigator, a stage for motivation, and a proposal for an alternative orphanage!

The project seeks to act as a bridge between sighted people and people living with visual impairment, a merging of both worlds.

Come on down to Objectifs on 26th March, Saturday, for sharing session with our artist, students and mentors!

The session will open with a short introduction by Artist-curator Dr Jay Koh, who will share his mentoring research and experience in Ireland with reference to a case study in the UK.
