PHOTOGRAPHY | Living Yangtze by Eric Valli for Swarovski Waterschool 
Just how many times does the word 'sustainable' get thrown around the fashion industry? Swarovski joins the ranks of brands championing Save-the-Earth efforts — they've picked water, which has a natural relationship to crystal. The Swarovski Waterschool has partnered with acclaimed French director, photographer and author Eric Valli for 'Living Yangtze', a multi-media exhibition documenting the lives of Chinese residents along the Yangtze River. If you're looking for a photo to stop you in your tracks, Valli's portfolio has many.

10 to 27 October from 10am to 7pm at ArtScience Museum. For more information, click here.

PARTY | SOLID GOLD 1st Anniversary

Hip-hop culture collective Solid Gold turns one, and what better way to celebrate it than with friends at Zouk. Joining DJ Ko Flow and Felix of the Radikal Forze Crew are DJ Rattle, Ollie 'Des, Rough, Shigga Shay, Mr Boo, The Lion City Boy, Yooh The Vibration and Radikal Forze. Dress in your streetwear best and groove to the genres which have shaped hip hop.

CULTURE | Mabuk Market

As its name suggests ('mabuk' means drunk in Malay), it's a flea art market that's the boozy sort. We're not talking frat boy fare though — instead, a selection your favourite easy eats feature: Neh Neh Pop, The Cajun Kings, Park Bench Deli and Momma Bear's Cakes (pictured below). Shop from local independent entrepreneurs curated by Good Citizen, and have a go at carnival-like game stalls created by the guys from kult.

11 October from 11am at Marina at Keppel Bay. For more information, click here.
