BUSKING@*SCAPE FAQ
  1. Why BUSKING @*SCAPE?
    • *SCAPE supports youth, talent and leadership development. Like many of *SCAPE’s initiatives, BUSKING@*SCAPE aims to motivate and empower youth to realise their potential, and offers a series of programmes for them to learn new skills, harness their creativity, and create something impactful while cultivating an enterprising spirit.
