DESIGN | K+ Curatorial Space Official Launch
K+ brings gallery, retail and community space together in their biggest home yet. Starting off with an exhibition featuring works from Nathan Yong, the winner of the President’s Design Award for Designer of the Year, the greatness is just beginning to unfold. Boasting a list of impressive retailers, including BooksActually, Kinetic and Tofu Design — we're excited for what's next.
1 July, 6.30pm at K+, Scotts Square. For more information, click here.
PARTY | Sunday on the Hill
It's that time of the month — the monthly Sunday affair by the good folks of Sideshow is here. Enjoy a laidback afternoon with tunes from Te Huhu, a band hailing from Aotearoa, New Zealand. Offering more than just music and food, the kids can get some action with a lesson in Capoeira, an Afro-Brazillian martial art. If that's not enough, show off your dancing skills with an after-dark session.
3 July, 3pm to 11pm at Kult Kafé. For more information, click here.
DANCE | Ballet Under the Stars
Back for its 21st edition, watch the ballerinas twirl, spin and execute perfect pirouettes at Ballet Under the Stars. Under the mastery of top choreographers Toru Shimazaki, Val Caniparoli and Ma Cong, the art of ballet will have you agape with wonder. Prepare yourself — and your picnic basket — for a fun time perched on Fort Canning Green under a blanket of stars.
1-3 July, starting 7.30pm at Fort Canning Green. For more information, click here.
