How "Liberty Art Jam" started

On a quiet night in July, while indulging in a reverie over some wine and music, the concept of “liberty” caught our minds. We dreamt about a communal art space where people can come together and paint, where people would be given as much creative freedom as they would have if they were in their own spaces.

We would call it ‘Liberty Art Jam’.

After pouring weeks of blood, sweat and tears in refining the concept—improving the layout of the studio and stocking up the materials for our art jammers—we launched two sessions of Liberty Art Jam on 2 August 2015 via meetup.com based on a Pay-What -You-Wish model. A total 15 art jammers turned up and we raised a total of $364 in a two meaningful and engaging sessions.

Following the first two months of hosting Liberty Art Jam sessions, we thought, why don’t we turn this into something more sustainable in the long run? It could become a regular communal art space for anyone and everyone. It could provide a familiar and intimate environment for a growing community to paint, escape the rat race and break away from hectic environments.

Painting is a therapeutic activity that benefits Singaporeans because it teaches us to slow down and embrace the moment. Hence, we have decided to organise regular Liberty Art Jam sessions to kickstart our journey towards a gracious and sustainable communal art space.
