Intercultural Encounters in Singapore
The Singapore Advocacy Awards is hosting its first event of 2016, “Intercultural Encounters in Singapore” on 16 April. Singapore has been a hotpot of cultures since time immemorial. Within our multiracial and multireligious society, how do different groups and cultures understand and accommodate each other? How are social prejudices created and maintained in Singaporean society?
These issues will be dissected and unpacked during the panel discussion, which will feature speakers such as Alfian Sa’at, Sangeetha Thanapal, Daniel Goh and Elaine Ho. The event will also be featuring poets such as Divya Victor, Karisa Poedjirahardjo, Ng Yi-Sheng and Shivram Gopinath, who will be sharing their heartfelt poetry with the audience. If you would like to partake in an afternoon filled with creative pieces and insightful discussion, then do join us during the event! Details are as follows:
Date: 16 April 2016
Time: 2.30pm to 5.30pm
