With the theme “These Storied Walls”, the annual Textures: A Weekend With Words festival returns for the third time. Inspired by The Arts House’s many identities; from a Scotsman’s planned estate to a courthouse, assembly house, our nation’s first parliament, and now Singapore’s literary arts center committed to enriching lives through the arts, the walls of The Arts House have been etched with many stories. Textures celebrate the power and beauty of words. It invites you to experience and appreciate how words give us the ability to express ourselves as well as give meaning to our lives and the world.
Co-commissioned by The Arts House and #BuySingLit, and supported by National Arts Council, this year’s edition features an array of interactive elements that animate Singapore literature throughout the house, including VR experiences, audio-visual exhibitions, and interactive installations.
In view of the evolving COVID-19 developments, the situation is being closely monitored and you will be updated should there be any changes to the festival. Otherwise, the events outlined will be going ahead as planned until further notice.
Most programs are free to attend.
In this celebration of local narratives, Singapore’s writers, artists, and performers will come together to create more stories for the walls to tell with interactive elements like VR experiences and audio-visual exhibitions.
