CHILDREN and youths from The Business Times Budding Artists Fund (BT BAF) took part in Citi's 12th annual Global Community Day on Saturday. They put their creative energy to use and facilitated a tote bag design workshop.

Joining them at the art jamming sessions were BT editor Wong Wei Kong, head of Asean and Citi country officer (Singapore) Amol Gupte and head of Citi Commercial Bank Singapore Lin Hsiu-Yi.

The highlight of the day for the BT BAF beneficiaries was having some of their artworks picked for Citi Commercial Bank's 2018 calendar.

This is the third consecutive year that Citi Commercial Bank is collaborating with BT BAF to showcase art by the young artists in the bank's marketing collaterals.
