Meet the team

singaporeans are a funny bunch. wherever we are in the world, ask us and we'll be glad to tell you about these things: singlish, food, army daze, or ahem, sg50. 

now, a bunch of us have come together to bring you a singapore arts festival in new york city, a 2nd home that has taught us to treasure what we currently have and what has originally allowed us to be here.
