Lumination

lumination 2019 banner


Held in conjunction with National Day, LumiNation takes centre stage in The Arts House to explore the Singaporean identity through performances, talks and more. Audiences are invited to discover and reconnect with the quieter parts of the Singaporean conversation over a weekend of thoughtfully curated programmes.

This year, LumiNation explores the theme Building Identity, putting our personal relationships with the nation in conversation with communal narratives and histories, as well as exploring the relationship between the self, place and space in creating a fuller sense of belonging.
