The Covid-19 pandemic has been one of the biggest crises to hit our shores but it has also shown us the best of the Singapore spirit. We Are Majulah, a social movement that focuses on community and identity building initiatives, hopes to celebrate the Singapore Spirit that has helped us navigate through the pandemic and will continue to move the nation forward with a ground-up initiative, Project Lionheart.
Project Lionheart seeks to highlight and champion five core qualities – Hope, Duty, Compassion, Invention and Strength, that have shone through the pandemic. The initiative aims to collect stories of poignant lived experiences from the ground and share them with the community as sources of inspiration through art installations, wall murals, music & theatre performances, and short films by more than 30 local artists, muralists, filmmakers and musicians.
Additionally, in partnership with Project Lionheart, The Majurity Trust has pledged $100,000 to the SG Strong Fund to support ground-up initiatives in Singapore. The public is encouraged to share their own incredible stories with Project Lionheart which will hopefully inspire more ground-up initiatives supported by the SG Strong Fund.
Project Lionheart had a successful exhibition launch at Ang Mo Kio where the public got to see Lee Wei Lieh (Wei) from Very Small Exhibition, a collective that creates interactive and meaningful public art, transform his famous LOVE light art sculpture into HOPE, while lit in rainbow colours.
The next stop will see the roving exhibition head to Tan Tock Seng Hospital from 17to 21 October. This time, Project Lionheart is honoring frontline workers who have exemplified grit, sacrifice and determination alongside many others who continued to serve their duties to keep our country’s core functions moving.
To bring to life the spirit of ‘DUTY’, Wei will be unveiling his second art installation, a chandelier of iridescent face masks with lights shining through from above.
Beyond the art installation, the Project Lionheart exhibition will feature up to 20 community stories that have displayed the spirit of Hope, Invention, Compassion, Duty and Strength through individuals’ actions, efforts, and deeds during one of the most challenging periods for our nation.
Visitors will also be treated to musical performances by local artists NyaLi, Weish and Wheelsmith on 19 and 20 Oct. Find out more here.
