About the Talk

One year in Timor as a volunteer

In 2010, Mr Alvan Yap travelled to East Timor as part of the Singapore International Foundation (SIF) programme to aid the hearing impaired. Over the course of a year, Mr Yap, who is hearing impaired himself, helped develop a standard curriculum for local educators. Upon his return to Singapore, he worked with the SIF and the Arts House on ‘A Year in Timor’, an exhibition of his photographs, Mr Yap will speak about his experiences in a very special U@live session; his photographs will also be on display as a part of Montage 2012, a week-long celebration of the photographic arts, with exhibitions and workshops at the Shaw Foundation Alumni House.
