We Didn't Expect That!

Each year, VSA organises an art exhibition to showcase artworks by young artists with special needs from the VOICES (Voices Of Individual’s Creative Expressions) programme. This annual art exhibition provides a platform for these talented young people to express and communicate their thoughts freely to the public through their artworks.

A total of 18 young student-artists (between the ages of 14 to 28) will be presenting their artworks in this year’s exhibition. These participants are student-artists with autism spectrum disorder, down syndrome, hearing impairment and learning challenges as those are regarded as special needs. A variety of mediums were used as they prepared for this art exhibition.

With this year’s theme of “We didn’t expect that!”, the young artists tried to capture moments that were unexpected or unforeseen to them. Whether it was a welcome surprise or not, the unpredictability of life is expressed through art the way they know best.

Workshops will also be conducted during the exhibition period to engage members of the public in art activities that could help them understand the rationale of the artworks showcased in the exhibition.
