Most importantly, it made me realize the value of the arts. That the arts have the ability save, inspire and heal lives. I’m the artiste I am today because of my humble beginnings with LAA & 10SQ.”

Ng Hui Qi

Read Testimonial
Hui Qi took visual arts and was a prolific painter. Her works were selected for corporate collaterals and exhibited at SIBOS 2015 in Singapore.

“Through my training at 10Square Youth, I learned more about visual arts and had managed to build a good portfolio. On top of that, I also met a group of friends who are passionate about arts and had done various projects with them.

After leaving 10sq, I pursued my diploma in Early Childhood with Ngee Ann Poly. I graduated last year and am now an Early Childhood Teacher.”

Shahizman
18 years old

Read Testimonial
Shahizman took up dance. A talented student he represented Singapore at ChildAid Asia Indonesia 2017.

“With my mother being the sole breadwinner, supporting my sister and I, I am grateful to BTBAF which has given me the opportunity to learn more about the performing arts and experience a taste of what its like in the performing arts industry. The Arts Incubation Programme has helped me find my passion and interest in dance. I was lucky to be trained by nationally known professionals who opened my eyes to the different aspects of dance. Without BTBAF, it would have been a harder struggle for me to find what I loved to do, as my family would not have been able to afford an education for a course in a performing arts academy, and I would have been given far less opportunities and platforms to showcase my talent in front of an audience.”

He was accepted to LaSalle to pursue music.’

“The BT BAF has helped me by funding my fees for the 10 Square Youth programme. When I first came to 10 Square Youth programme, I did not know how to sing pop songs. But after receiving music training for one year, I manage to learn. Both BT BAF and 10 Square Youth have made me learn many new things and also made me become a better person – more disciplined and confident.”
