Events: Singapore International Festival of Arts 2017
Singapore, April 19, 2017
Travel agents may entice theatre and arts-loving audiences to Singapore with a four-month stretch of the Singapore International Festival of Arts (SIFA) from June 28 to September 9. This will comprise the pre-festival of ideas called The OPEN (Open, Participate, Enrich, Negotiate) and the main festival. Unlike previous years, there will be no gap between these two festivals.
This year's edition will focus on Singapore artists and collaborations with international artists across 16 productions. In addition, there are seven international productions. Together they will generate over 90 events for theatre and arts-loving audiences, including OPEN films, featuring the world’s best feature films screened at The Projector this July.

In another highlight of OPEN, culinary activist and 2016 Prince Claus Laureate, Kamal Mouzawak, will deliver a keynote on July 7, and create an Open Kitchen based on his philosophy of Make Food Not War, which inspired the food movement in Lebanon from market (souk) to the table (tawlet). Then, across different locations in Singapore there will be Open Kitchens on different dates where audiences are invited to cook with local hosts in various venues including The Arts House, Victoria Theatre and homes.
