Our Home Sweet Home

Director’s Message

There are many layers to what home can be. For some, they may manifest as material spaces, but for others home is immaterial and is more of a feeling or a sense of security and comfort. Over the many months of preparing for this festival, I personally have been touched by the many definitions and manifestations of home that our community partners have come up with. Through this year’s festival, we hope that participants will be able to interrogate for themselves what home means to them and where exactly their homes are.

This year’s festival includes our biggest line-up yet with 64 unique programmes and 3 festival villages across 3 weekends. We are excited for participants to come down to My Community Festival, and hope that this will fuel more explorations into the community to feel the heartbeat of Singapore.

Yours Truly,

Kwek Li Yong

Festival Director
