FILM | Asian Film Symposium 2015
Take a gander through the lens of Asian perspectives on how pop culture influences our society.

Featuring compilations influenced by the mass media with elements from fashion and television to music and language, this is one appointment film aficionados won't want to miss.

MUSIC | IAM Live in Singapore
If you're looking to unleash your inner dancing machine, French hip hop legends IAM will be in Singapore for the very first time to perform their chart-topping hits. Kicking off with the classic number Je Danse le Mia, the band is pulling out all the stops following their extensive US tour and summer festival performances.
ART | ARNDT: Rodel Tapaya, Diamond in the Distance
Bridging the mystical and reality, leading Filipino visual artist Rodel Tapaya will be exhibiting his latest collection 'Diamond in the Distance', where he explores human desires in the search for metaphorical treasure. Using acrylic on canvas and paper, the exhibition draws inspiration from a story by American minister Russell Conwell, Acres of Diamonds, which depicts the plight of overseas Filipino workers.
