Red + White = Pink
This piece was done for Words of Change, a collaboration with Pink Dot for a first post-pride-month campaign organised by VIRTUE, a creative agency under Vice Media Group.
Pink Dot SG is a non-profit movement started by a group of individuals who care deeply about the place that LGBTQ+ Singaporeans call home. It is a group for everyone, straight and gay, who support the belief that everyone deserves the freedom to love. With openness and acceptance, PinkDot hopes to bring LGBTQ+ Singaporeans closer to their family and friends.
This year, Pink Dot 14 attendees expressed their hopes for change by penning down messages on placards at Pink Dot 14. Inspired by these messages, Words of Change aims to carry forward the energy from Pink Dot 14, to keep encouraging meaningful conversations, and inspire change locally.
Artists are invited to create a visual representation that inspires progress in the local community to show that pride extends beyond Pink Dot and Pride Month.
All artworks are then matched to local business partners for exhibition in the month of August to September.
