Black Cat Theatre - Sentiments of the Heart” tells the story of two different generations living in the early days of Singapore, as they come together to build new friendships and forge the kampung spirit along the way, despite differences in their cultures and languages. The second part of the play brings the story to the 1950s and 60s, focusing on the turbulent relationships of 3 sisters and their mother, and how the family gets torn apart in the eldest sister's pursuit of love.

In support of the Singapore Red Cross and under the direction of the Dance Ensemble Singapore (DES) Founder and Artistic Director, Mdm Yan Choong Lian, and Concert organising chairperson cum producer, Ms Terene Seow; with choreography by DES Dance Director, Sharon Low, DES Creative Director, Cai Shiji and DES Resident Choreographer, Goh Yan Dan; and performed by Terene Seow, Ang Tallin, Jack Ye Zheng Wen, Kuan Seck Mui and more, “Sentiments of the Heart” will be presented in the form of song and dance drama where audiences can expect a light-hearted musical performance with a ‘Singaporean’ flavour.

Singapore Red Cross Humanitarian Conference 2018 - Humanitarian Challenges of Refugees and Displaced Persons

The Singapore Red Cross (SRC) invites you to attend the 4th Singapore Red Cross Humanitarian Conference - Humanitarian Challenges of Refugees and Displaced Persons, on 13 October 2018 (Saturday).

The Red Cross Red Crescent Movement has been on the forefront of rendering humanitarian assistance, protection and advocacy for refugees; displaced persons; and migrant workers, seeking to reduce the vulnerability of migrants and displaced persons by enhancing resilience.

This Conference aims to look into issues surrounding migrants, refugees and internally-displaced persons (IDPs), and highlight the challenges faced by both migrants and displaced persons, as well as, the humanitarian players. Although this Conference focuses on the challenges faced by displaced persons around the world, one of the sessions will focus on challenges faced by migrant workers in Singapore and how local humanitarian players have been reaching out to them. All the speakers at the Conference will bring first-hand experiences, both from personal involvement, as well as, that of their respective organisations.

Through this year’s Conference, SRC hopes to create a common platform for institutions, interested Voluntary Welfare Organisations (VWOs) and volunteers, to facilitate the sharing of experiences, perspectives and best practices. We believe this would lead us to be better prepared, more efficient and effective when responding to humanitarian needs around the world.

The details are as follows:

Date: 13 October 2018

Time: 9:00 am - 2:00 pm (Registration starts at 8:30 am)

Venue: Sophia Cooke Ballroom, Fort Canning Lodge , 6 Fort Canning Rd, S(179494)

Seats are limited! Please RSVP your interest by Friday, 28 September here.

*A confirmation email will be sent once we have secured a seat for you.
