Project Memories: A community-based arts project from an art therapy perspective in Singapore – Yoko Choi Chi Mei, Roshni Bhatia, Boo Xu Ning, Lee Shulian

We at FoundSpace are a collective of artists, art therapists, and mental health professionals that work with individuals, groups and communities through art. We combine our individual expertise, and aim to reignite authentic connections to material environments and enhance the sense of well-being of those who we work with through a hands-on approach. Through advocacy and experiential outreach, our team works toward our larger goal of bringing arts to all.

Our Philosophy 

FoundSpace adopts a person-centered approach to affirm each individual's capabilities and strengths. We work to create a safe space where clients can feel empowered to engage in the process of self-discovery. Our artist-therapists act as compassionate facilitators, listen without judgment and guide our clients' therapeutic process so they may uncover their own solutions and gain personal insights. We also emphasize sensory mindfulness using a strong material-based approach, strengthening holistic wellbeing and life enrichment.
