There are almost 240,000 foreign domestic workers in Singapore, but many remain unseen and invisible, defined solely by their duties and responsibilities of cleaning, cooking and caring. This exhibition delves beneath the labels to unfurl the many selves that domestic workers keep hidden from Singapore society – as dreamers, artists, and changemakers, both locally and in your home countries. This is a call to all domestic workers to share your Unspoken Life.

As part of Aidha’s fundraising campaign, “Gift of Education” campaign and International Migrant Workers Day on 18th December 2017, Aidha and our partners, Lensational, Sing Lit Station and Intersections have organised the 2nd Annual Photography Exhibition! The exhibition is open to the public on 16th & 17th December at Intersections gallery, Kandahar Street from 1pm to 6pm.
