Project background

The Family Justice Courts (FJC), in collaboration with Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA), Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF), Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS) and Artbeatz Pte Ltd, has transformed the hoarding panel at the Octagon building construction site into a bright and lively art space along the theme of “Hope”.

The hoarding features inspirational artworks designed by youths from five agencies, namely, the Boys’ and Girls’ Home Singapore, East Youths, Probation and Community Rehabilitation Service (PCRS) and MINDS. These artworks are physical expressions of the youths’ interpretation of “Hope”. 

This theme of Hope is aligned with FJC’s workplan 2021 theme - “Tomorrow is a New Day”. It emphasises that despite the challenges the youths’ have had to deal with, there remains hope for a better future. The theme also complements the FJC’s focus on applying Therapeutic Justice to restore and rebuild families, by applying a lens of care that seeks to address the root causes of family breakdowns. Much like the tapestry of artwork is a labour of love of many hands, the application of Therapeutic Justice involves a multi-disciplinary effort involving judges, lawyers, mediators and mental health professionals to find lasting solutions for family disputes.

This project provided a meaningful opportunity for the youths to connect and co-create their design with other youths from different agencies virtually. The artwork will cover approximately 270 metres of the hoarding panel. The hoarding design will be displayed till 2023. 

Refer to the following for the various artworks to experience the youths’ expressions of ‘Hope’.
