The exhibition runs from 5 May to 31 July 2021 at Everyday@ERA and aims to provide opportunities in discovering and developing their creative potentials.
SINGAPORE, 5 May 2021 – ERA Singapore (ERA) held its Q2’21 Career Advancement Day virtually today with the opening of a charity art exhibition titled Earth/Sea 2021. The virtual event was graced by Mr Desmond Tan, Minister of State for Home Affairs & Sustainability and the Environment, and attended by over 8,000 trusted advisers in Singapore.
Organised in tandem with The Business Times Budding Artists Fund (BT BAF) and Living with Art, the charity art exhibition features over 48 paintings by 32 children and youth who are the beneficiaries of BT BAF. The purpose of the art exhibition is to celebrate life where every person regardless of race, language, or religion lives in harmony and draw awareness of the social issues that may affect our environment.
Specially curated for the newly renovated Everyday@ERA — the largest co-working space for real estate salespersons in Singapore — this exhibition with the message of empowerment aptly aligns with ERA’s vision to become the real estate company of choice for its clients and real estate salespersons. ERA trusted advisers can visit the art exhibition at the lobby of Everyday@ERA, from 5 May to 31 July 2021.
To support, ERA trusted advisers can scan the QR code next to each painting and enter a desired donation amount (above the minimum price) to acquire the painting. The amount raised will be donated to BT BAF that reaches out to financially disadvantaged children and youth between the ages of 6 to 19. The initiative enables them to learn, discover and nurture their talents, developing their artistic techniques while cultivating social and emotional competencies.
“ERA’s quarterly Career Advancement Day has always been to recognise our teammates’ hard work and celebrating milestones. Today is made extra meaningful with the Earth/Sea 2021 charity art exhibition, where we get to empower the future generation and help them develop their creative potentials, “said Jack Chua, Chief Executive Officer of ERA. “We are humbled to be able to partake and provide the underprivileged a platform to shine while bettering the community, a mantra that we hold dear and practise in ERA.”
Prior to this, ERA has also raised S$20,000 in less than two months from their recent fundraising campaign, ‘1,000 Goodie Bags’ for BT BAF Children for Children (CFC) 2021 initiative. Together, ERA staff and advisers hope to make this Children’s Day a special one for 1,000 children from underprivileged families, with each of them receiving a goodie bag during their outing to celebrate Children’s Day.
