One of the many reasons Chingay 2014 is so unique is because it has incorporated community efforts of many levels. Take for instance, Project Batik 360; Paint With ONE Heart has seen different communities coming together through Batik painting. The intricate 360 meter Batik Fabric that will flow through the entire Parade route accompanied by colourful multi-cultural performers.

Another community project for Chingay 2014, Knit with One Heart has seen different communities coming together and bonding through knitting. These knitted art pieces exemplifies a closely-knitted Singapore.

Spectacular Grand Finale! Featuring 720 meters of colourful Community-knitted Tapestries from Project Knit with One Heart. The theme song for the finale; 网织同心” is an Original Song composed by renown local music talent Mr Lee Si Song. I love how the song is able to intertwine 4 different languages in 1 song. Uniquely Singapore!
