Streets and Places of Singapore is a collection of writings dedicated to the stories, memories and lives of the streets of Singapore. It features 26 new works by authors across three generations, each writing about their version of Singapore in poetry and prose. Through the text, they hope to transcend time and space to form parallels between Singaporean lives in both the past and present.


Mask-wearing is optional. However, audiences are encouraged to continue to exercise responsibility and caution, such as wearing masks when in crowded places.
