16 Days of Activism 2018

From 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10 December, Human Rights Day, #16DaysOfActivism is a time to galvanise action to end violence against women and girls around the world.

 

For far too long, impunity, silence and stigma have allowed violence against women to escalate to pandemic proportions—one in three women worldwide experience gender-based violence.

 

The time for change is here and now.

Unspoken Life gives voice to the journeys that FDWs take when they arrive in Singapore. There are over 240,000 FDWs in Singapore but many remain unseen and invisible, defined solely by their duties and responsibilities. This exhibition delves beneath the labels to unfurl the many selves that FDWs keep hidden from Singapore society—as dreamers, artists, and changemakers, both locally and in their home countries.

Sun salutations, also known as surya namaskar in Sanskrit, is a series of 12 yoga postures that are linked by the breath in a single, graceful flow. The number 108 holds many symbolisms in various cultures, and it is believed that there is a total of 108 energy lines converging to and from the heart chakra.

 

Practise for a good cause by joining Iris Tan and Nicole Chew from Hom Yoga for a meditative flow of 108 Sun Salutations. All proceeds will go to the Singapore Committee for UN Women.

Catch Xavier Legrand’s debut movie Custody (“Jusqu’à la garde”), which won accolades at the Venice Film Festival in 2017.

 

Miriam and Antoine Besson have divorced, and Miriam is seeking sole custody of their son Julien to protect him from a father she claims is violent while Antoine pleads his case as a scorned dad. A hostage to the escalating conflict between his parents, Julien is pushed to the edge to prevent the worst from happening.

 

The film will be followed by a panel discussion on gender-based violence and divorce law in Singapore.
