The Art of Advocacy in Singapore

Excited to attend this upcoming book launch at the 2017 Singapore Writers Festival, and pleased to have contributed some reflections on mental health advocacy.


Book Launch:

5 November 2017, Sunday
11:30 AM – 12:30 PM at The Arts House, Gallery II
1 Old Parliament Lane, Singapore 179429
Free Admission.

37 activists write about their causes and discuss the strategies shaped and lessons learnt as they practise the delicate art of advocacy in Singapore. Reflecting the nature of civil society, there is a diversity of voices. Some give a more personal account, while others describe the institutional experience of advocacy work. Some essays are crisp and succinct, others offer long and detailed accounts.

Constance Singam has published Where I Was: A Memoir from the Margins and Never Leave Home Without Your Chilli Sauce.

Margaret Thomas helped to republish her father’s works, Memoirs of a Migrant by Francis Thomas and The Politics of Defeat.
