The medical doctor and founder of non-profit organisations Kitesong Global and My Brother SG revives her love for calligraphy after 20 years
Through her work as a medical doctor, educator and non-profit founder, Tam Wai Jia has found different ways to impact the lives of others and help them regain their own strength. In her latest work, a series of Chinese calligraphy artworks, she says she hopes to encourage “intergenerational healing by inspiring a sense of redemption, renewal and restoration”.
The Dream Collection, which comprises 10 artworks, was skillfully created by Tam after a 20-year hiatus from practising calligraphy. They will be showcased at Tam's debut solo exhibition at Clarke Quay Central Atrium in Singapore from January 13 to February 5.
The artworks are also for sale, with all proceeds going towards Kitesong Global, Tam's non-profit organisation which nurtures and inspires young people to be changemakers.
During the pandemic, Tam also founded My Brother SG, a network that connects migrant workers, healthcare authorities and other organisations in Singapore to deliver strategic risk communication and community engagement for better health.
