I am Sharon Chen.


Over the last 15 years, I have had the great fortune of working on projects alongside many inspiring and creative individuals and organisations. This site showcases the many projects we have worked on. 


I am passionate about promoting social good. From creating workshops that enhances the well-being of seniors in nursing homes to working on a mobile app to help healthcare workers relax through art during the pandemic, I have been exploring new ways for people of all backgrounds to enjoy and benefit from the arts and culture. I am open to new opportunities to serving the community at-large.

I believe in and take an evidence-based approach to develop the various projects and am constantly learning to improve on them through visitor studies and impact assessment. If you have any feedback or would like to collaborate on projects, please do contact me.
