Photography can be a powerful tool when fused with the expressive artform of story-telling. During this talk, photographer Mr Sam Chin & Arts Manager Mr Ryan Chua share how this unique technique allows minority groups to express their sentiments which are otherwise often unheard or misunderstood by the general public. Ms Dorothy Leong, Senior Occupational Therapist, IMH, will also share on the therapeutic process of this expression. Examples from IMH's 'Picture My World' project will be shown. This project helped to guide individuals recovering from mental illness to communicate their feelings through photography, and also aimed to dispel misconceptions about mental illness and foster compassion and support for those affected by it.
