Lumination

In conjunction with National Day, the inaugural edition of LumiNation sets its sights on uncovering Singapore’s hidden stories. This season of programmes in the month of August casts a greater, fuller gaze at the ‘Singaporean Identity’, through the lens of written and spoken narratives. LumiNation invites audiences to rediscover and reconnect with the quieter parts of the Singaporean conversation, strengthening the belief that we are always more than just a little red dot.
