Come 4 July 2020, join us on our journey to build a more inclusive society for all persons with Down syndrome. Through Rock The Stage, we hope to showcase the talents and aspirations of persons with Down syndrome, and eliminate any myths or prejudices one may have towards the special needs community.
Guest-of-Honour, Mr. Chan Chun Sing, Minister for Trade and Industry will be opening the event at 8pm. Hosted by The Flying Dutchman, Mark van Cuylenburg. Rock The Stage features performances from DSA(S) members as well as guest celebrities like Gurmit Singh, Joanna Dong and Rahimah Rahim.
“We Decide” is the theme for this year, ensuring all persons with Down syndrome can participate fully in decision making about matters relating to or affecting their lives. We encourage all to join us online and journey towards a more inclusive society together. Local singer-actress Ms. Joanna Dong shared that she “hope that we can work towards eliminating prejudice in the midst of enjoying these performances. Empathy is the way forward to a more beautiful and inclusive future. You are beautiful, we all are.”
Down Syndrome Association (Singapore) will be streaming its first ever virtual show, Rock The Stage, on 4 July 2020 at 8pm via its Facebook page.
