Textures celebrates the power and beauty of words. It invites audiences to experience and appreciate how words give us the ability to express ourselves as well as give meaning to our lives and the world. With its profound ability to connect and unite, words breathe life into the vast breadth of human thought and feeling, whether spoken or written. In this weekend of words, we also celebrate Singapore literature and the people who have contributed to it. From mastering the craft to those building a community of writers and readers, they are all part of weaving and strengthening the fabric of our literary landscape.
This year, Textures 2019’s Love and Loss (and some things in between) shines a spotlight on how words capture and decipher a spectrum of emotions and related themes, through curated programmes that transcend traditional literary art forms, ranging from performances, exhibitions, workshops, talks, and a book fair.
