Official Opening of Singapore Writers Festival 2007

Earlier tonight I attended the Official Opening of the Singapore Writers Festival.

It was held at The Arts House. The Arts House was initially build as a house. It then became the Court House, then the Old Court House, then the Assembly House, then the Parliament House. Today is it an Arts Centre. If you are interested, click here to read more.

This photo shows the original Parliamentary Debating Chamber. Today, the hall can be booked for private functions, just like this one tonight for the Official Opening.

This is Philip Jeyaretnam, the National Arts Council, Council Member giving the Opening Speech. (I am using the picture because there's a clear view of the backdrop, so I can have less explanation! :-) )

The Theme this year is Crossings. There is a great line up of programme for the next 9 days. If you are free, attend the different programmes. More details can be found at:

Oh yes, if you only got time for 1 event for this festival, you know which one to go to!
