To celebrate International Women’s Day 2019, the independent voluntary Women in Arts Committee arranged our second BLOOM dinner.
I had a wonderful time co hosting an intimate ‘petal’ dinner for inspirational women working in the arts in Singapore. The intimate setting made it easy for us to all share personal stories and get to know each other in a relaxed atmosphere. This was followed by a wonderful party that brought several different petal dinner parties together at a secret location at the amazing Edible Garden City (link).
We were entertained there with beautiful classical music from Music and Makan Founder, Beverly Hiong and took part in a group art painting exercise conducted by Julie Michelle Ow, Founder of Canvass. A truly unique networking evening for women working across all areas of the arts.
As a member of the Women in Art steering committee which informs the programmes, I think it is so important to be a part of positive communities of women working, collaborating across disciplines and inspiring each other. It was formed (and is part of) Nuwa, along with several other female art founders in Jan 2018 to bring Women in Art together, to create a like-minded network specifically for women working in the creative industries. Since its inception, we have held Bloom 2018, Be Bold Be You, and a focus group to discover what enables and inhibits the progression of women in art in Singapore.
