the sama sama travelling campaign
Following our first launch in a migrant workers dormitory, we're extending a new call to action to the wider community, starting with universities in Singapore.
Art is our universal language to challenge perception and ignite dialogue. Weaving in technology, we will showcase inspiring stories of role models who have transformed themselves and their community in diverse ways.
The immersive public installation is made of scaffold and transformed through the use of resin and iridescence. Inside, a row of magic mirrors creates a unique experience for the viewer, visually capturing the essence of Sama Sama. Sama-Sama means “Same Same”, drawing parallels between the aspirations of migrant workers and ourselves.
The exhibit and outreach will be launched in various venues across Singapore throughout 2019.
11 - 18 mar LKY public policy x nus law
24 - 31 march utown, Migrant heroes festival
theme: empathy & inclusivity
All shows are 18+ to enter and 21+ to purchase alcohol.
VIP tables available upon inquiry.
Sama-Sama redefines the narrative of migrant workers as unconventional leaders. With the right conditions, migrants can inspire change for themselves, their community and eventually back home.
Together with NGO HealthServe, we'll guide the public to see migrant workers in a different light and #morethan their roles in Singapore. Sama Sama means “Same Same”, drawing parallels between the aspirations of migrant workers and ourselves.
Our migrant heroes are proof that a single belief can impact hundreds of lives. Imagine what we could do as a nation.
As a start, let's start with a simple promise.

From now until Labour Day, Humans of Singapore is joining forces with Sama Sama to celebrate inspiring migrants and locals.
Stories make Sama Sama, not the other way round. We'll feature stories of both migrant and local heroes who are #morethan.
