October 25, 2021 | Highlights

Foundation for the Arts and Social Enterprise is a proud partner of the Singapore Clay Festival ‘21 – sponsored by Sheng Siong (Principal Sponsor) and Enabling Village by SG Enable (Venue Sponsor). The multi-event community celebration will bring together more than 130 potters from 57 studios in a family-friendly and diverse programme that includes 4 exhibitions, 10 workshops for adults and children, and 65 market tables for visitors to admire and purchase a wide range of creative clay works.

Organised by Goh Eck Kheng (Festival Director), Seah Tzi-Yan (Festival Curator), and Wendy Cheong (Festival Organiser), Singapore Clay Festival ‘21 will take place from 19-29 November at Enabling Village, Singapore’s inclusivity hotspot in Redhill.

Goh Eck Kheng, Director of the Singapore Clay Festival , said: “The inaugural Singapore Clay Festival is an important milestone in studio pottery in Singapore. It gives our big, diverse, and growing community of professional and hobbyist potters the opportunity to interact with each other and to showcase their works to the general public. The Singapore Clay Festival joins other arts and theatre programmes which are resuming under current SMM rules. We stand with others in the Singapore arts community in not being defeated by Covid-19.”

Refashioning a uTopia is not an easy feat. But local rapper ShiGGA Shay made it his own by looking at a different perspective. Titled ‘uTopia reimagined: chasing’, this is the third release of the UTOPIA Reimagined Series, an initiative by the Foundation for The Arts and Social Enterprise, and reflects ShiGGa Shay’s response to the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s UTOPIA Symphony.
