Speak your mind is about encouraging creative self-expression, the sharing of thoughts and stories, as well as meaningful interaction with peers and the community amongst children with special needs.

One of the prototypes created was a Gesture Drawing Interface that can be calibrated (creative engineering by Kaori Toh and Clara Koh). The aim was to empower children with limited mobility to be able to participate in creative expressions such as drawing. We believe that their physical disabilities should not be a barrier to art-making.
