    The O.P.E.N. 2015

    The O.P.E.N. 2014

    The O.P.E.N. is ultimately concerned with creating a sustainable ecosystem of the arts in Singapore. Singapore International Festival of Arts proposes to move beyond sheer consumerism in the arts, with its trend of ‘use and throw’. Instead we hope to transform the cultural landscape of Singapore by encouraging audience ownership of ideas, issues and themes before the Festival opens.
