Kari Tamura, SAMASAMA @ Fuze Night July 2016

Together with an artist Calvin Tay, Kari Tamura founded the SAMASAMA initiative - which aims to reshape the narrative from sympathy to empathy for migrant workers in Singapore. She shared learnings from the engagement with migrant workers, partner organization HealthServe and the process of creating the exhibition in Westlake Dormitory. 

Kari spoke at Fuze Night July 2016, and funds raised during the evening were channelled to Babes Pregnancy Crisis Support.
