"The only cultural goods that ultimately matter are the ones that love creates". - Andy Crouch, CULTURE MAKING
Yesterday was a red-letter day for jazz maestro Louis Soliano and dance choreographer Low Mei Yoke who were awarded the Cultural Medallion, Singapore's highest honour in the arts; and five artists - playwright Faith Ng, visual artist Hilmi Johandi, sound designer Lim Ting Li, dancer and choreographer Mohamad Sufri Juwahir, and conductor and music director Zulkifli Mohamed Amin who received the Young Artist Award.
President of the Republic Halimah Yacob and Minister Grace Fu presented the honours at the Istana. Glenda Chong put us at all ease and steered the proceedings with flying colours. I was glad to enjoy the warm fellowship in the arts community.
The National Arts Council deserves kudos for its great work.
