Long Term Partnership With The Art Faculty
A social enterprise by Autism Resource Centre (Singapore), The Art Faculty celebrates abilities of people with autism and related challenges.
In November 2020, To Be Calm has worked together with The Art Faculty to release a limited edition Embrace Candle to be sold exclusively at their store. For every sale of artwork and product, differently abled artists earn royalty to earn their independence.
In July 2019, To Be Calm collaborated with The Art Faculty and two of their artists, to produce two gift boxes in the style of Singapore's most iconic scenery spots, the Singapore Skyline and the heritage shophouses. The artists earn a royalty fee for every gift box of their design that is sold.
We also regularly host a series of candle making workshop with The Art Faculty every year. Each participant received a $10 voucher donated from To Be Calm to spend in The Art Faculty's in house shop, to help raise funds for the artists and awareness on autism.
In 2018, we collaborated with The Art Faculty and one of their artists, Gavin to produce a set of scented candles packaged in a sleek gift box embellished with a majestic ink drawing of Singapore's iconic Merlion. Artwork has been treated in Singapore Airline's gold and navy signature colours, accompanied with a stylish, understated watermark of SIA's batik motif.
The initiative is a collaborative effort by Singapore Airlines, SG Enable - an agency dedicated to enabling persons with disabilities - and the Autism Resource Centre (ARC) which started the Pathlight School. It is part of SG Enable's campaign.
Singapore Airlines has launched KrisShop Cares to retail products and artwork by people with special needs. Nett proceeds will be go to The Art Faculty and the candles and other exclusive products can be found at Singapore Airline's KrisShop.
