Through art and cultural exchange platform CausewayEXchange, the Singapore International Foundation brought Singaporean and Malaysian communities together to explore the role of the arts in promoting healing.

Singapore and Malaysia share deep historical, social and cultural ties. An annual art platform, called CausewayEXchange (CEX), seeks to deepen this connection through artistic and cultural exchange.
The two countries take turns to host CEX, which started in 2010. Last year, the Singapore International Foundation (SIF) collaborated with production company DMR Productions, non-profit arts organisation The Rice Company and non-profit creative enterprise Global Cultural Alliance for the 7th edition of CEX, which was held from Sept 1 to 13, 2016.
