A multi-disciplinary art project involving photos, video and a play seeking to bridge the local versus foreigner divide will be travelling through five Singapore heartlands next month.

Called "Singapore Portraits", the art show is based on 1,000 conversations with Singaporeans, Permanent Residents and foreigners alike over issues such as inflation, housing, foreign talent competition, foreign student quotas and national service.

Presented and organized by LASALLE College of the Arts, the project is a collaboration between LASALLE alumni, lecturer-artists and industry professionals and will travel to Boon Lay, Woodlands, Toa Payoh, Marine Parade and Bedok.

It seeks to answer tough questions such as "What do Singaporeans fear?" and "What do foreigners fear?" in a way that will shed light on each other's identity, perspectives and sense of belonging.

Mr Rashid Saini, Project Leader of Singapore Portraits and Lecturer at LASALLE College of the Arts said, "Through art, we hope to foster new shared values that cradle tolerance and acceptance between foreigners and locals."
