Theme

“Make” is the theme of our Yellowren Arts Festival 2018, an exploration of the endless possibilities to make beauty and hope for our communities.

About the Festival

Yellowren Arts Festival started in the heartlands of Singapore at the beautiful Lower Seletar Reservoir Park in August 2013 to bring arts into areas where residents can enjoy and meaningfully engage arts right where they live.

With free outdoor performances, art exhibitions and workshops, our annual arts festival draws an excellent crowd from the neighborhood in the north. Along with fringe activities, the festival provides a platform for local artists to showcase their artworks, create conversations, establish connections with one another and more importantly to allow a broad spectrum of our community to see beauty and hope. The festival also gathers and introduces Singaporean food start-ups and enterprises to the local community to share the passion for food and promote culinary skills as an art form.
