Grandmother Tongue

 

Dear Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community,

 

W!LD RICE’S Grandmother Tongue

Written & directed by Thomas Lim

Starring Jalyn Han, Tan Shou Chen & Rei Poh

 

Synopsis:

In Singapore where dialects have been losing relevance for generations, Grandmother Tongue traces a young man’s struggle to connect with his 84-year-old Teochew-speaking grandmother. He teaches her to use a mobile phone. He helps her buy her favourite brand of soya sauce. He visits her in hospital after a fall. Along the way, he begins to understand just what it means to spend many years not having to know the dialects and culture.

 

The funny and understanding play shows that the social costs of our mother-tongue language policy and the removal of dialects in today’s Singapore. In humorous and heartbreaking way, Grandmother Tongue explores how our identities are bound up with the current languages that we use and the dialects that we lose.

Invitation to Event by Society Staples

 

Dear Deaf and Hard-of-hearing community,

 

Fitness Kaki is an inaugural flagship event under Society Staples’ new initiative, Tinker Labs – a novelty pop up series aimed to bridge the social gaps of PWDs in society, and to accelerate the progress of Singapore towards a more inclusive future. It will feature innovative and fresh ideas aimed at creating new shared experiences, and expanding the status quo of possibilities and potentials of PWDs.

 

Aptly incorporating the Singaporean lingo for friend, Fitness Kaki is a platform to forge bonds of friendship through sports and exercise. It is Singapore’s first ever adaptive obstacle course where participants will undergo a pseudo firefighting experience and soak in the thrills and spills of being a fireman/firewoman for a day! There will also be other exciting activities like inclusive yoga and carnival games!
