The pink ribbon is an internationally-recognised symbol for breast cancer awareness and identifies with the breast cancer community.

What is BrArt?

BrArt is an advocacy campaign by Breast Cancer Foundation (BCF) and Our Bralette Club (OBC), aimed at raising awareness about breast cancer through fashion, art & design.  It is a fashion/art design competition where, we hope that participants will be inspired by the colour pink which is associated with breast cancer awareness. The final outcome of this competition will be to showcase the winning pieces in a public exhibition during the Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, to draw nationwide attention to this disease and how early detection can save lives.

Through the project, we hope that the conversations sparked through the process,  would encourage women to take charge of their breast health and to do their breast self-examination (BSE) as well as go for their routine mammograms. No one should walk this journey alone. Whether you have doubts or have been diagnosed , BCF is the first port of call for those affected about breast cancer (including caregivers). BCF is set up to support the breast cancer community through the services and facilities provided at our newly opened Breast Cancer Centre.
