Festivals and Major Events
Singapore Writers Festival
The Singapore Writers Festival is one of Asia’s premier literary events, organised by the National Arts Council. Inaugurated in 1986, the Festival serves a dual function of promoting new and emerging Singaporean and Asian writing to an international audience, as well as presenting the world's major literary talents to Singaporeans. SWF has delighted book lovers by featuring literary celebrities such as Singapore writers Meira Chand, Felix Cheong, Shamini Flint, Ho Minfong, Sonny Liew and Edmund Chen, as well as international writers such as Steven Levitt, Michael Chabon, Neil Gaiman, David Mitchell, Bei Dao, Joe Haldeman, and comic book writers Gail Simone and Mark Waid.
To date, it remains one of the few literary festivals in the world that is multi-lingual, celebrating works in Singapore’s official languages – English, Malay, Chinese and Tamil.
Previously biennial, the festival will host its 15th edition in November 2012. Please visit www.singaporewritersfestival.com to learn more.

2011 Noise Singapore
Noise Singapore is a media-based festival of creativity showcasing various arts talents in Singapore. This project is initiated and supported by the National Arts Council of Singapore. Noise Singapore is the Asian chapter of Noise Australia, which originated in Australia in 2001.
Noise Singapore is a unique media-based festival, based on the evolving relationship between consumers and technology, the internet, digital downloads, mobile phones, gaming, and the ever-converging media environment. This highly-accessible festival focuses on the ever-converging relationship between the youths and technology, by employing IT tools such as the internet, digital services, mobile phones and software in the creation, submission and/or showcase of original, creative works by youths.
The 2010 Noise Singapore received more than 9,000 entries from more than 1,000 participants. Together with sponsors and partners, it took the voice and ideas of Singaporean youths to more than two million Singaporeans.
