Sri Bestari International School recently hosted their “M.A.D. (Making A Difference) Through Arts” event, in line with their M.A.D. activities, where students reach out to the community and provide support for a variety of social issues.
Students proudly displayed and sold their artwork to guests including paintings, spray painted pieces and collaborative artworks. SBIS was proud to have representatives from SAMH Wisma Harapan and Art Market Malaysia attend the event to sell artwork and handicrafts from disabled or local artists. Representatives from ULC (United Learning Centre for Refugee Students) also created a collaborative art installation titled “Saviour Wings” alongside SBIS students. Books written by Rachel Siew Suet Li were also sold by students in collaboration with Leaderonomics.
Proceeds went back to the students or towards the Rachel Siew Suet Li Trust Fund. The Bestarians were shown how they can use their talents to make a difference in their community and budding artists were motivated to unleash their potential.
