Pop and Talent Hub (PaTH), a social enterprise initiative by Social Innovation Park (SIP) Ltd, was born to challenge the dream of creating a more level playing field for the traditionally marginalised but artistically talented.
We believe that solutions can be sought from within the community and help the marginalised level up; to build a truly inclusive society - where everyone finds space for his or her own talents and modus operandi, where they can maximise their talent and passion, and build a most self-reliant and cohesive society, regardless of their backgrounds, physical or intellectual abilities.
PaTH has come to position itself as Singapore’s first ever, Social Enterprise Talent Platform. PaTH champions social entrepreneurship via the Arts, aiming to bring about a mindset change, enabling the less-advantaged, allowing the average man on the street experience social-consciousness and possibly, paradigm shifts.
Incepted in mid October 2006 as a pilot run for the festive season and with the support of its first venue partner VivoCity, PaTH has since morphed into a regular event, operating on the first and last weekend of each month.
“Besides giving them a commercial platform to showcase their talent and earn their income, talent participants are encouraged to come out of the closet and into the mainstream, and help educate the public regarding their special conditions. We hope that through the launch of PaTH, society at large will begin to see marginalised people in a different light. They have talents, have the same capacity to do well and lead at least financially independent lives”
