NEWS: The Future of Our Pasts Festival
Singapore’s history will come to life in a different way with The Future of Our Pasts Festival (TFOOPFest), a month-long festival that explores lesser-known stories of communities and places of the past and present, reimagined through artistic mediums. Organised by Yale-NUS in conjunction with the Singapore Bicentennial, TFOOPFest will run from 16 February to 17 March 2019 at various locations around the city.
The festival will showcase eleven creative projects by students and recent graduates from different tertiary institutions in Singapore and abroad, to investigate and present less explored micro-narratives of Singapore’s history. TFOOPFest invites people to discover and engage with Singapore’s history from different perspectives, in order to look to the future, via these projects. Each project centres on different themes — space, architecture, communities, language, race, relationships, and the arts — to take audiences on an emotive and immersive journey through time.
TFOOPFest will also be organising other fringe activities open to members of the public throughout the festival period. In addition to panel discussions, workshops and walking tours, there will be curated film screenings at The Arts House and The Projector.
