19 Aug Photography Exhibition
Great news! We will be exhibiting photographs that will revolve around our 5 SGEFF themes. Thanks to our parters who recently came on board with us, Singapore Environment Council (SEC) and Photographic Society of Singapore (PSS), our photography exhibition is made possible. A little background information of our partners:
Meeting with Ms Siti Farhana, Environmental Outreach Manager of SEC
Established in 1995, the Singapore Environment Council (SEC) is an independently managed, non-profit and non-government organisation (NGO). SEC influences thinking on sustainability issues and coordinate environmental efforts in Singapore. SEC continuously engages all sectors of the community by formulating and executing a range of holistic programmes, such as the Singapore Environmental Achievement Awards, Asian Environmental Journalism Awards, SEC-StarHub School Green Awards, Singapore Green Labelling Scheme, Project: Eco-Office, Project: Eco-Shop and Project: F&B. In addition, SEC builds a pool of committed volunteers under the Earth Helpers programme. Their Training and Education arm provides the people, public and private sectors with the opportunity to develop awareness, knowledge, skills and tools in order to protect and improve our environment for a sustainable future.
Strong partnerships with corporations, government agencies and other NGOs are key to SEC. These partnerships are vital for sustaining SEC’s programmes, leading to positive action and change. Over the years, SEC has given strength and direction to the environmental movement in Singapore. More information about SEC can be found here.
Meeting with Mr Vincent Liew, Honorary Secretary of PSS
PSS has been involved in many photography events such as the Singapore Garden Photographer of the Year, the Pacific-Atlantic International Photography Circuit which is co-organised with prominent institutions in the US, Greece and Singapore (PSS) as well as community events. They will be hosting the 63rd Singapore International Photography Awards, an event that encourages global exchange through photography. They have plans to hold a world touring exhibition and with Kuala Lumpur Photo Festival being their first stop, then to tour to other countries such as Japan, Greece and Turkey where their culture is more foreign to South East Asia. As Mr Vincent had mentioned, “In SEA, we are culturally connected in many ways and we are hoping to establish more cultural exchanges through photography with countries that may not be familiar with Singapore’s culture and to help us to better understand theirs as well. ” More details about PSS here.
