Press release from AWARE.
A flea, fun and food fair honouring 25 years of AWARE.
It’s our 25th birthday bash and all are invited to AWARE Centre for some family-friendly revelry at Celebrate! AWARE’s 25th Birthday Party on Saturday 27th November, from 12 Noon to 8pm. This flea, fun and food fair features a full day of exciting activities so women and men of all ages can be part of this important and exciting milestone. Join us and celebrate women, celebrate how far we’ve come and celebrate 25 fabulous years of working together for gender equality.
SIX REASONS TO COME TO CELEBRATE:
1. Stellar local acts
Performances by our home-grown stars on the rise: Inch Chua, Lunarin, Baracuda Batucada, Likeaband, and classical Indian dancer Aarthi Sankar.
2. Go Bazaar
Shop for apparel, handicrafts, books and snacks, at any of our 40 flea market stalls. Eight stalls are in support of our non-profit friends: Action for Singapore Dogs, Girl Guides Singapore, Child Welfare Scheme (CWS) Nepal, WINGS (Women’s Initiative for Aging Successfully) and more.
3. Share, Learn, Interact
Have something to say? Here’s your chance to say it. At Ignite: The Unconference participants decide what gets said and what gets heard. Here’s how it works: Participants who would like to speak put up their proposed topics on a board, and everyone votes for what they want to hear. The most popular topics are scheduled in first. This unstructured, participative format is based on Barcamp, a globally successful event.
4. Express Yourself
As part of our interactive art project, we invite our guests to be part of three creative installations celebrating AWARE’s past, present and future.
5. Child’s Play
Fun-filled game stalls, a dance competition for kids aged 12 and under, and a demo to teach young ones how to stand up to bullies.
