Digital Arts For All - Train The Facilitators Session

Description

DAFA (Digital Arts For All) is an inclusive ecosystem that uses digital arts to empower, give back and showcase. An initiative kickstarted by Make The Change Pte Ltd (MTC) in late 2017, DAFA embodies the MTC belief that creativity can be the connecting key to educate, empower and strengthen inclusiveness in society today.

Using digital arts as our main avenue of expression, DAFA is crafted to underline experiential learning and empathetic thinking. A welcoming platform for beginners to understand, apply and develop skills in digital art, DAFA strives to foster an active ecosystem through engaging workshops, an accessible online gallery and a purposeful e-commerce platform with the plough-back profit model.

As an advocate of inclusivity, DAFA also believes in instilling a consciousness of media and digital literacy through its programmes. The internalisation process is essential in bringing down isolating barriers across varying communities to live out its values: “Be safe, Be smart, Be kind” as a way of life.
