Photos from Where Are We Going? 17th & 18th Sept, 2016

We would like to say a big thank you to everyone that turned up for "Where Are We Going?" over the weekend!
What a community conversation we embarked upon! We heard stories of our personal and collective journeys, and of dreams, fears, courage, emotional support, family and social pressures, and so many more. There was a sense of optimism about where we are going, and yet recognizing the many challenges, especially for those with different needs, and our rapidly ageing society.
We are also grateful for our wonderful Sign Language Interpreters Claudine Chan and Zhixiong, and also Weiyong, our Live Captioning Notetaker. This event is special because of you and the support from Nix Sang and our Deaf friends.

Where are we going? What is our destination? What kind of society do we want to be a part of? What will our country be like in the future? What is the world coming to? What can we do now, to build the world we want to live in?
