Don’t just take pretty photos with these gorgeous sculptures! The highly-visual, gamified trail encourages you to engage with them and deepen your understanding of the issues facing tiger conservation through a series of quizzes and Instagram AR filters, which can be unlocked at each sculpture on the trail. Simply scan the QR code at the base of each sculpture to find out more.
WWF’s Tiger Trail is raising awareness and funding to address the unrelenting decline in tiger populations across Southeast Asia. So what else can you do? Aside from visiting and engaging with the trail itself, a range of specially designed Tiger Trail Merchandise is available to purchase through the E-shop. All proceeds will go directly to furthering WWF-Singapore's important tiger conservation work.

SRT is proud to stage Amy Ng’s adaptation of August Strindberg’s Miss Julie, in collaboration with Hong Kong Arts Festival. This co-production premieres in Asia, making its first stop in Singapore before moving to Hong Kong. For the first time since the pandemic, this production brings together a creative team and cast from Singapore, Hong Kong and the United Kingdom.
Directed by Singaporean Ng Choon Ping, Playwright Amy Ng’s adaptation of August Strindberg’s Miss Julie transports us into a tumultuous era, where the disintegration of the British Empire is set against the rising consciousness of nationalism sweeping across Asia. Co-produced by Singapore Repertory Theatre and Hong Kong Arts Festival, this is a startlingly provocative play where differences of class and race rub against each other like tectonic plates, resulting in an eruption of sexual powerplay and class manipulation. Gripping to the very end, Miss Julie challenges preconceptions about racial supremacy, sexuality and taboo relationships.
Get your tickets at S$45 from SISTIC or www.srt.com.sg.
When? Till 20 February 2022
Where? KC Arts Centre – Home of SRT, 20 Merbau Road, Singapore 239035

A marquee event of Singapore Art Week, Light to Night Festival will light up the Civic District and beyond with visual spectacles and new interactive art experiences from 14 January to 3 February 2022.
Spearheaded by National Gallery Singapore, the displays can be viewed across the Asian Civilisations Museum, Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, The Arts House, Victoria Theatre & Concert Hall, and new collaborators including the National Library Board, Capitol Singapore and Funan.
Artists and creatives were challenged to create artworks that uncover new perspectives and stimulate conversations based on their understanding of how the world has evolved in the “new normal”. Audiences, in turn, are invited to engage with these novel viewpoints. The exciting phygital format means scanning QR codes and using AR technology to interact with the exhibits.
Our two favourite art installations can be found at the Padang. Flight by LiteWerkz is an interactive installation inspired by the flight of birds that encourages introspection and self-discovery. Flight responds to Bluetooth signals emitted from festivalgoers’ mobile devices, to generate a symphony of light and colours that reorientates one’s perception of space. In contrast, Fragment of a Shoreline by Spatial Anatomy and Akai Chew with OFTRT brings audiences back to the Padang’s history yet encourages them to ponder on the present. Festivalgoers can sit at a reconstructed shoreline from the 1800s as multisensorial features prompt them to reflect on their individual experiences.
Meanwhile, crowd-pleasers including iconic light projections and live performances by Singaporean talents will continue to delight audiences.

Art Agenda 2022 - ‘WE’RE YOUNG ONCE’
Art Agenda proudly presents its first exhibition of 2022, ‘We’re Young Once’. Comprising more than twenty works across different mediums and periods from an intergenerational selection of 15 artists spread across two storeys at Art Agenda, the exhibition is curated by young artist-curator Ian Tee. It forms part of Singapore Art Week (SAW) 2022 and is supported by National Arts Council (NAC) Singapore.
“In many ways, this project is born out of the conversations I have had with artists about their experiences and the “art scene” they grew up in. It also reflects my curiosity about the artworks I know through books or images online, but have never seen in person,” says Ian Tee.
‘We’re Young Once’ presents a rare opportunity to revisit different moments in history in one setting, and discover unexpected early works by artists we might be familiar with. Though the artworks on view are varied in their approaches, medium and subject matter, they all manifest a youthful spirit – of fearlessness, experimentation and vulnerability.
When? Till 30 January 2022
Where? Art Agenda, 63 Spottiswoode Park Road, Singapore 088651
