Lit Up Singapore 2012

Over the last year and a half, SPORE Art Salon has featured a whole lot of performance poets. Now, many of them are involved in a literary arts festival called Lit Up Singapore.

The event's running from Sun 22 to Sun 29 July at Telok Ayer Performing Arts Centre (TAPAC), the soon-to-be-demolished building at 182 Cecil Street, Singapore 069547. 

The website's at, and the Facebook page is here. The event's also non-profit, so the organsers are raising funds via a Rockethub page.

There'll be shows, workshops, exhibitions, bazaars, plays and musical performances. We'd especially like to highlight the launch:

TAPAC Courtyard, 4:30-7pm, Sun 22 July

Besides being a wonderful place to mingle, this event will mark the debut the Party Action People, a spoken word troupe made up of *Marc Nair, *Lee Jing Yan, Nabilah Husna, *Deborah Emmanuel, *Zuni Chong, Abel Koh, *Charlene Shepherdson and SPORE Art Salon curator *Ng Yi-Sheng.

Asterisks (*) denote poets who have previously performed at SPORE Art Salon. Nabila Husna is also lined up for a performance in September. Come by and check out what happens when a group of poets slams together.
