Special Event: Building a More Accessible Circuit

As Singapore eases out of isolation, this industry panel reflects on how the circuit breaker is reframing conversations around access and inclusion.

With remote working and learning, fast-tracked digitalisation and a growing awareness of mental health, this pivotal moment is providing a growth period for more varied, creative ways of working. What valuable experience and insights from this period can we take with us to build a more accessible circuit in the 'new normal’?

Panellists include Paul Adams (Learning & Engagement Manager, Singapore Repertory Theatre), Serene Goh (Senior Programme Executive, Singapore Association for Mental Health), Grace Lee Khoo (Founder and Creative Development Director, Access Path Productions) and Jean Loo (Co-Founder, Superhero Me). The session is moderated by Steven Ivan Williams (Senior Officer – Programmes, ArtScience Museum).

Sign language interpretation will be provided by The Singapore Association for the Deaf for this event.
