Transforming industries through art graduates’ perspectives
As Singapore continues to invest in and upskill local talent for the next stage of the country’s growth, unconventional pedagogies such as an arts education have an important role to play in designing the future of Singapore. It is against this backdrop of Singapore’s economic transformation that 870 graduates received their diplomas and degrees at LASALLE College of the Arts’ 33rd Convocation held on 30 Aug 2019.
The ceremony was officiated by Guest of Honour Mr S Iswaran, Minister for Communications and Information who said, “We need more young people, like all of you, with a desire to innovate, experiment and the ability to think out of the box, no matter what discipline or field you are in. We also want that ambition, to be coupled with a strong social consciousness – a sense of self, a sense of community and the vision to make a difference in the world and the commitment to pay it forward in the world.”
