ART ROCKS US
BUILDING FUTURE-PROOF BUSINESS PARTNERSHIPS TO ACHIEVE REAL SOCIAL CHANGE AND EMPOWERMENT THROUGH ART
A one-month collaborative showcase between profit-making and not-for profit organisations.
An innovative collaboration between educational non-profit organisations Fugee, Angsanacare and profit-making agency Brand Me Happy and Tea Bird Tea, ART ROCKS US is running from 05 January to 02 February 2023 at Menara Ken TTDI. The immersive art experience features scintillating artworks by career artists, product designers and talented Fugee School students.
WHAT WILL YOU EXPERIENCE AT THE SHOWCASE?
Inspiring art from Fugee School students and refugee artists as they tap into their artistic potential
Thought-provoking exhibits by Sharon Abdullah and Ashleigh Cotterill of Brand Me Happy and Angsanacare.
Fugee Dream School campaign and new website launch. Fugee is introducing its new Giving Catalogue and fundraising to build the Fugee Dream School. Art- based commercial product ranges by Tea Bird Tea, Fugee School and Fugeelah.
Entrance is free of charge. However, profits from any art or products sold will go directly to the seller with 10% of all sales being pooled to cover the running costs of the exhibition. Fugee student artists get 20% for each art piece they sell and the balance goes towards funding the Dream School.
Born out of the premise that no child gets left behind, Fugee began as a tuition centre for 4 Somali siblings. Over the last 14 years,
the Fugee School became a leading refugee education non-profit developing end to end, future-focused learning opportunities for refugee children and youth based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Founder Deborah Henry also started Fugeelah, a mission driven social enterprise created for refugee children and youth.
Brand Me Happy agency was founded during the pandemic to service small businesses by Sharon Abdullah of Angsanacare and Ashleigh Cotterill of Tea Bird Tea.
Angsanacare has two main programmes of activity, psychological intervention and music and art therapy for paediatric patients. Professional play, art and music therapy. Angsanacare’s services extend to the entire family, where possible and offer holistic therapy for their families.
The collaboration of the organisations resulted in the creation of the Fugee Dream School, an expansion of the well-regarded Fugee School. Why? Because there are many refugee children still out of school and with this expansion we can offer existing students an improved learning experience and increase our intake. We want to think big and ensure that every child at Fugee School has the right to the best education possible- and the Fugee Dream School will be an awesome new and improved safe environment for our students to reach their full potential.
