The Social Fairground
The Association for Persons with Special Needs (APSN) teamed up with The Local People (TLP) and Singapore Land Authority to present a one of its kind event benefiting a good cause. The curated stalls and buzz at the TLP Art Market consisted of carnival games, shop-till-you-drop merchandise stalls and an array of performances by local singer-songwriters and APSN’s very own beneficiaries.
Participants joined in sports events which were reminiscent of good ol’ school sports day. Teams ran through an obstacle course designed to test their agility, speed and creativity. There was also a human library where one could interact with a person with special needs; find out their favorite hobby, hopes and dreams.
The aim of this event was to promote a culture of diversity, inclusion and attitudes of acceptance towards persons with special needs through a social platform with arts and sports elements. The amount raised funded APSN Centre for Adult’s operational costs, training and programmes.
