Join us at Kreatif Connections
Join us at Kreatif Connections from 29 June – 1 July to celebrate the creative collaboration and friendship between Indonesia and Singapore. Musicians, artists and craft makers from both countries will gather for this three-day extravaganza at the Empress Lawn and Asian Civilisations Museum.
The highlight of Kreatif Connections is the Opening Outdoor Concert at Empress Lawn on 29 June, from 7.30pm to 10.30pm, featuring multi-talented musician Isyana Sarasvati and rising hip-hop artist Adrian Khalif from Indonesia, as well as singer Aisyah Aziz and electro-pop crooner Jasmine Sokko from Singapore! Visitors to the festival will also be entertained with a cross-cultural production titled “Cupu Manik Astagina: The Sacred Jewel Box” that will combine wayang kulit (shadow puppetry), modern dance choreography and fusion gamelan music to tell a tale based on the Javanese version of Ramayana.
In addition, the festival will feature an all new art and sound installation at the Asian Civilisations Museum titled “The Current/s We Call Home | Arus Berlabuh Kita” – a collaboration between artists Kabul and Mintio, with the participation of transnational families from Indonesia and Singapore. The National Gallery Singapore will also be presenting a new audio tour titled “Masters Across Indonesia and Singapore” on the Gallery Explorer App, available from 29 June. The audio tour will highlight artists from both countries and how their travels influenced their art.
Enjoy a variety of of free performances, hands-on activities and workshops from community batik painting to tea blending inspired by the flavours of Indonesia and Singapore! Admission to the event is free, and registration for the workshops will begin on 8 June via Peatix.
June 29 (Friday) 7:30 pm - July 1 (Sunday) 7:00 pm
