Heart Hope Haiyan 2014
Event Organiser, Artist Liaison and Curator
'Heart Hope Haiyan' was a charity concert organised to raise funds for the victims of typhoon Haiyan which hit the Philippines in 2013. I helped to organise this concert while I was working with the Singapore Show Choir Academy (SSCA), and I was excited to use this opportunity to bridge the gap between the dance and show choir communities in Singapore, while also fundraising for a good cause.
The production period was approximately from mid-Dec 2013 to late jan 2014. I handled the liaison with artists (many of whom were friends of mine) and formed a committee of volunteers to assist me in the concert preparations (ticketing, graphic design, etc). We had a total of 250 performers, a mixture of students and professional performers, some of whom have represented Singapore in international dance competitions.
While the concert was a success, it also marked the last time I worked with SSCA, whom I ended up splitting from due to artistic differences.
