 I AM A VERY SPECIAL PROJECT is a creative merchandise project initiated by Very Special Arts Singapore, under its ALIVE (Art for Livelihood and Employment) programme, to help artists with special needs to gain financial independence through art making.

With the objectives to raise awareness about the cause and eliminate prejudices (of the public) toward artists with disabilities, a range of merchandise such as sketchbooks, coasters and tote bags are produced for sales.

Despite having an unattractive appearance, each item claims to be “very special”. This contrast urges the audience to “open up” or “see the other side” of the product to find the inner beauty of it–the artwork. This is the same attitude we hope to cultivate in our society, that is to appreciate the hidden beauty of a person and not judge him/her by his/her appearance and/or disabilities.

All sales proceeds go to fund VSA arts programmes which will benefit our artist beneficiaries.
