Sentire ([sen-tee-ray]; to feel, to hear) Singapore is an on-going initiative to help the hearing and visually impaired in Singapore access, appreciate and enjoy the performing arts.
Sentire Singapore began as an outreach project which consisted of a special music workshop and performance dedicated to the hearing-impaired at the Singapore School for the Deaf (SSD). The project, titled Project:SENTIRE, was the first of its kind and was held in the multi-sensory sound laboratory at the SSD in January 2013. Since its inaugural project, Sentire Singapore has designed and organized 5 more projects in 2013, and was also invited to showcase a vocal and soundpainting performance at the inaugural Singapore Association of the Deaf (SADeaf) gala dinner, and to more than 450 distinguished guests including Mdm. Ho Ching.
A philanthropic initiative, Sentire Singapore is established to provide an experience as interesting and satisfying to the hearing and visually impaired in Singapore. It is our intention to expose the hearing and visually impaired to rich and varied performing arts experiences which includes performances and collaboration, and to inspire and nurture creative minds.
