DAFA (Digital Arts For All) is an inclusive ecosystem using digital arts to empower, give back and showcase. An initiative kickstarted by Make The Change Pte Ltd (MTC), DAFA embodies the MTC belief that creativity can be the connecting key to educate, empower and strengthen inclusiveness today.
As an advocate of inclusivity, DAFA also believes in instilling a consciousness of media and digital literacy through its programmes. This internalization process is essential in bringing down isolating barriers across varying communities to live out its values: “Be safe, Be smart, Be kind” as a way of life.
Using digital arts as our main avenue of expression, DAFA is crafted to underline experiential learning and empathetic thinking. Welcoming beginners to understand, apply and develop skills in digital art, DAFA aspires to foster an active ecosystem through engaging workshops, an accessible online gallery, and a purposeful e-commerce platform.
