ART-ACT Festival, Singapore

ART-ACT Festival is a platform for international collaboration since the artists and designers come from different disciplines such as Textiles and Mixed Media, Fashion Design, and Graphic Design, among others. The artists are alumni and current students of the Royal College of Art in London (the #1 postgraduate university for Art and Design) with the support of Nanyang Technological University, School of Art, Design, and Media in Singapore.

In a world of constant disruption, crisis, and conflict, art becomes a powerful tool to drive change. It gives a space to explore and discuss the problems that affect us as human beings and fosters the generation of innovative and revolutionary ideas. Youth and creatives are on the frontline of social change, challenging and questioning power structures. By empowering these individuals and sharing their views on the world and how we live, we want to act as an amplifying platform to reinforce the role of artists and designers as key stakeholders for a better tomorrow.

Held at two locations: Ten Square, Landmark of Good and Media Art Nexus, NTU
