Back for its third run, this time online, The Enabling Festival aims to connect with caregivers and provide people with an insight to people with dementia. 

This year’s festival will focus on  ‘SIGHT’. Various health professionals will answer questions from the ground on the theme, ‘Do You See What I See”, which invites audiences to see what the caregiver or people with dementia see.

The programme includes informative films, talks, theatre and movement classes. Check out the full festival schedule here.

COVID-19 may be the first health pandemic the younger generation is experiencing,  but it is definitely not the first one to have hit humankind. 

The National Museum of Singapore is holding an exhibition, Every Body Plays A Part, which uses the concept of the “body” to showcase the little-known side of Singapore’s history of public health.

The online event is split into four different exhibits and you can explore them here.
