Textures 2019

Love and Loss (and some things in between)

Textures returns with the theme "Love and Loss (and some things in between)". The festival explores how in times of heightened emotions, words help us express our feelings and make sense of our world. From performances, exhibitions, panel discussions and workshops, Textures reaches out to those new to SingLit and those seeking to engage with it on a deeper level.

Textures is a signature programme of The Arts House celebrating Singapore literature and those in the literary arts industry. It is co-commissioned with the #BuySingLit movement and supported by the National Arts Council.
