Post Event Update


An online songwriting workshop was organised in collaboration with Esplanade on 25 September 2021, Saturday with 13 caregivers in attendance. Under the guidance of singer-songwriter Crystal Goh and artist collective, Diamonds On The Street, they learnt the basic techniques of lyric-writing and melody creation.


Participants were then encouraged to explore their emotions and inner world. A safe space was created for those who wished to share their challenges and sing the songs of encouragement and self-acceptance that they wrote for themselves.


As one of the participants, Anna Wong said, ‘Through this interesting activity, I was able to compose a tune despite my initial struggle with the technology used.’


CAL’s Corporate Outreach Manager and staff-in-charge of the activity, Renay Pereira was present during the session and concluded, ‘It was a rewarding experience and I would recommend that everyone try it to discover the tiny internal voices we so often have no time to hear.’
