With over 30 programmes, the inaugural Textures—A Weekend with Words will explore and champion Singapore writing. The three-day festival at The Arts House also puts a spotlight on the literary community in Singapore—from writers, publishers and booksellers, to translators, editors and more.

Textures invites everyone to dive in, appreciate, and enjoy the power and beauty of words. Festival-goers can choose from a gamut of activities including dramatised performances of iconic Singaporean works, panel discussions, film screenings, workshops and other programmes that traverse genres and forms.

From offering a starting point to get acquainted and fall in love with words, exploring creative ways of bringing literary expressions to life, to programmes that celebrate the plurality of languages in Singapore, there is something for everyone in this weekend of words.

Textures is co-commissioned by The Arts House and #BuySinglit, and supported by the National Arts Council.

Note: Public admission for all programmes is free except for The Page on Stage and Note for Note. Advance registration for selected programmes is recommended due to limited seating capacity.
