3PM - 4PM: In Conversation – Kirsten Han and Teo You Yenn

Yep, we can't believe it either! Kirsten Han and Teo You Yenn will be interviewing each other in a candid conversation about their work, the craft and labour involved in writing, and perhaps some questions involving cats... Please note that this session will be recorded for the New Naratif podcast, and that if you miss this, that discomfort in your chest is known as regret.

5PM - 6PM: In Conversation – Alfian Sa'at and Diana Rahim

Alfian Sa'at and Diana Rahim will be discussing how artistic practice and creation is understood in Singapore, and what alternative ways the environment and construction of the Creative can look like. And yes, we can read your mind—they will talk about the recent phenomenal success of Merdeka.

2PM - 5PM: Ethos Bakes (while stocks last)

Fulfil your afternoon dreams of tasty pastry in one hand and good book in the other! For every purchase, you'll get ONE (!) tasty pastry for free. Lovingly prepared by in-house masterchefs Gabriella and Bettina, and with our team's seal of sweet approval
