“It is He who has created you (and made you grow), and made for you the faculties of hearing, seeing, feeling and understanding: little thanks it is ye give”. 67:23
A collective of artists from different disciplines, ranging from sound, visual, relational and new media art, will facilitate a series of workshops for artistic special needs youths which will culminate in a performance. The performance will be a multi-sensory display, a collaboration of life and artistic processes that represents the growth of individuals, seeking to understand each other’s lives better.

The Substation turns 22 this September and we’re celebrating with SeptFest!

It has been at the forefront of supporting critical, rigorous and experimental art in Singapore for the last 22 years.
Join us this September as we celebrate another milestone for The Substation, Singapore’s original home for the arts.

Kuo Pao Kun Festival
This year marks the tenth anniversary of Kuo Pao Kun’s passing. Best known for pioneering and developing multicultural themes in his body of work, Kuo’s humanistic ideals, integrated into his brand of theatre, continue to rouse and inspire theatre-makers today. This festival is open to all who share our passion; beyond honouring him, we wish to explore our relationship with Kuo Pao Kun a decade later. Visit www.practice.org.sg for more information.
