Signatory to call for discourse on IP - June 2015

In June 2015, the Association was one of 229 signatories to a letter calling for discourse on IP and artistic practices. This was in reference to a report that “Quirky ping pong table at SEA Games carnival resembles work by Singaporean artist”. Following this, Sport Singapore agreed to make a goodwill payment to artist Lee Wen. http://www.todayonline.com/voices/call-discourse-ip-artistic-practices http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/sportsg-to-pay-artist-lee/1912716.html

My Write Foot Challenge - May 2015

In May 2015, the Fundraising Subcommittee started work - many thanks to member Dora Tan for organising. The first activity was to run the My Write Foot challenge, where members and friends would either attempt to write with their right foot, then video and post the results - or pay a forfeit to the Association.

More details on the My Write Foot challenge can be found here.

Watch the videos here!

In May 2015, the Association also set up a Paypal account and Youtube channel.
