' Common Senses for Common Spaces (or CSCS) seeks to bridge that gap by creating a common and safe space to emphasise on our commonalities and downplay our differences. We hope that this will increase appreciation for diversity and reduce the risks of conflict in our society. "

Colours is a significant element that spices human lives.  ‘Follow the Rainbow’ discusses the varying and overlapping uses and impacts of colours across various industries and communities.  Interestingly, while colours bear many hues and tones, they too share many commonalities as humanity strives towards a colour-blind society.

' Biologically, we are all bestowed with differing degrees of optic lense. We all don’t see colours in the exact same way.  As such, we have no way of knowing that the red I see, is the same as the red you see.  This inherent inability to have identical perceptions is a quality or advantage for us humans.  And why is it a natural quality or advantage? Because it forces us to step forward and exchange our views, both in the optic sense and ideological sense. This also applies to how we ought to view religions and worldviews."
