#BuySingLit 2019 Open Call

Be a part of the #BuySingLit movement as a programme partner, and organise an event to celebrate our Singapore stories. The aim of the movement is simple – as reflected in the tagline, it is to encourage the public to “buy local and read our world”. By promoting and buying local books, we are investing in our own stories and deepening our roots here. In other words, we are building and growing our home.

#BuySingLit grows bigger in 2019, as we will spread across two weekends in March (8 – 10 and 15 – 17 March). We invite you to participate in the 2019 edition and submit a proposal for an event through the Open Call. Successful applicants will receive grants* for their proposals.

Download the application package below. The application package consists of an application form, budget form and guidelines. The deadline for application is 21 September 2018, 2359hrs. Incomplete submissions will not be considered. Only successful applicants will be notified.

*Grant amounts vary according to proposal and guidelines.
