NEW ANGLES / NEW WORKS feat. Kirsten Han, Grace Yeoh, Ruby Thiagarajan

  • Sing Lit Station 22 Dickson Road Singapore, 209506 Singapore (map)

In recent years, journalism in Singapore has found itself adopting newer moulds and bolder formats — with stronger, sturdier convictions. NEW ANGLES is particularly interested in seeing how new, alternative journalism might persist and press on in Singapore.

The final edition of NEW WORKS will feature writers Kirsten Han of New Naratif, Grace Yeoh of Rice Media, and Ruby Thiagarajan of Mynah Magazine, each speaking on the roles they play in their respective publications, as well as their hopes and dreams for the future.

The event begins at 5pm; door opens at 4.30pm. There will be a Q&A session after the presentations. Prior registration will be required ($15 / person), and ticket-holders will be prioritised over walk-ins; all money earned will go towards paying our speakers and feeding our cat. We’ll serve lots of tea.

Kirsten Han  is a Singaporean freelance journalist and Editor-in-Chief of  New Naratif , a platform for Southeast Asian journalism, research, art and community-building. Her work often revolves around the themes of social justice, human rights, politics and democracy, with bylines in publications like  The Guardian, The New York Times, The Washington Post  and  Asia Times .  In 2018, she received an Honourable Mention from the World Justice Project’s Anthony Lewis Prize for Exceptional Rule of Law Journalism. Her essay, "The Silhouette of Oppression", was published by Epigram Books in 2019. Kirsten is also a founding member of We Believe in Second Chances, a group advocating for the abolition of the death penalty in Singapore.
