Singapore: Inside Out Sydney

Curation

2017 / Kensington Street, Chippendale, Australia / Singapore Tourism Board

Singapore: Inside Out Sydney is a three-day experiential showcase that recognizes Singapore’s top creative talents from a spectrum of disciplines and serves as a platform for multi-disciplinary and cross-national collaborations between Singapore and Australia.

Zarch Collaboratives is the creative director of the showcase and the theme for this SGIO is ‘Movement’. “Movement” within the creative process, where Singapore’s multicultural identity has inspired diverse practices that challenge long-held perceptions of what it means to be Singaporean. The search for one’s identity is a never-ending and complex journey, especially in a city as multifarious as Singapore. Beyond issues of birth, race, and language that seem to divide us, this showcase seeks to converge these differences through the array of creative practices that explores collective history, memories, culture and surroundings.
