Shoutout to the local talents that defined Singapore’s art scene – and those who are about to make an impact. Live it up at the NAFA Arts Festival 2018 where many activities await you.
Art schools always know how to throw the best parties. Especially if it’s one to celebrate over 80 years of establishment and stellar achievements. There’s a lot to shout about when the academy has been a beacon for creatives in Singapore, from fashion designers to illustrators. The Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) is doing just that. If you ever harboured art school dreams back in your salad days, here’s a chance to live it at NAFA Arts Festival 2018!
Starting 13 April, the festivities and slew of cultural events will continue well into 3 June. With an array of activities catered for all, expect all art disciplines and all ages to be celebrated.
Kicking off with a three-day opening arts carnival and then something exciting going on every weekend after that), check out outdoor movie screenings, themed festival markets, floor murals that you can interact with, a book fair and artist makers market, art workshops for kids and adults and even a Harajuku fashion parade – cosplay fans are welcome to join! If you’re a bit more of a fine arts enthusiast, there is plenty to see around the campuses of NAFA over the period. Student art exhibitions, dance and music performance as well as graduation drama students’ shows will also be open for all to attend.
