Singapore Writers Festival 2019 - Festival Pass | SWF Youth Pass
Synopsis

Get access to more than 100 events at SWF with the Festival Pass / SWF Youth Pass.

This year’s theme is A Language of Our Own: A Language refers to any system that allows for communication, be it verbal, physical or visual. While language has the capacity to create belonging, it can also be cause for displacement. In a world that is so simultaneously globalised and fractured, who has language left behind? What has language taught us about the past and how must language evolve to accommodate a changing humanity?

Please note that you will need to present a valid student ID upon exchange of the SISTIC ticket for the SWF Youth Pass at the SWF Info Counter.
